PHUKET: Lifeguards at Nai Harn Beach are urging all beachgoers to swim only between the red-yellow flags following a spate of foreigners needing rescue, with an Irishman rescued from rocks on Monday and a Polish man rescued just yesterday (July 21).


The warning came after an Irishman was rescued from being dashed on rocks, and an exhausted Polish man was in need of oxygen after being pulled back onshore from a dangerous rip current.


Lifeguards were first alerted to 30-year-old Polish man at about 11:30am after he went to swim where red ‘no swimming’ flags were posted, Nai Harn lifeguard Narongdet Senajutti told The Phuket News.

Mouth to mouth replaced with oxygen, you can thank Covid for that.

Good that they put him in the recovery position but his head should have been facing down, towards the water, in case anything needed to come out,

How Stupid can people be?  If you see a red flag warning not to swim, don’t, and if you do be prepared for an early appointment with the crematorium.
