A dramatic rescue of a German tourist in Koh Phangan yesterday. The man remains in a coma.
Witnesses said that Heyros Jochen (name transliterated from Thai) had entered heavy seas at the beach where a red warning flag was flying.
Hotel staff and other tourists heard his cries for help and entered the sea to rescue him.
Thai news media say they believe he suffered from cramp after fighting to stay afloat in the heavy seas.
