Tell that the Chinese touragent. These trips are booked and paid for in China, if they can't swim it should be dealt with there.

Don't see how it's possible to drown while wearing a life jacket and snorkelling.

Unless run over by a boat or jetski.

...or inhaling water, perhaps; isn't snorkeling done with the face in the water?

God that’s sad they really need to train thease tour operators and hold them accountable condolences to the young woman’s family 

Was the tour operator responsible for this woman's death?

No real need to swim if you dive or snorkel. The buoyancy jacket keeps you afloat.

Do you need to swim to take a bath?

 

Death while snorkelling is a bit odd, and there must be more to the story they haven't revealed.

I'm still betting she was hit by a boat or jetski.

 

Although Hawaii is also having a snorkel death problem recently, about 17/year.

So it's not an entirely Thai problem.

Perhaps the snorkel 'tube' got filled with water whilst she inhaled?

I'm betting you have no clue.
