Body found, may be last missing passenger in Thai boat accident
    2018-07-13  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

A BODY which may be the last missing passenger on board the capsized tourist boat Phoenix in Thailand’s Phuket was found Wednesday afternoon, Thailand’s Phuket Provincial Governor Norraphat Plodthong told a press conference at the command center for the search and rescue mission.

Thai and Chinese rescuers found Chinese RMB cash and sea sickness pills on the body, and the body was in the same life jacket as other passengers on board Phoenix. Based on this, the body was assumed to be the last missing passenger in Phuket boat accident, Norraphat said.

As of 5:00 p.m. Wednesday, 47 were confirmed dead in the boat accident, including a body still trapped by the boat’s wreckage underwater, the governor said.

Ram Union rescue team from China, together with a Thai-Chinese rescue team called Blue Sea, told Chinese media that they found the body Wednesday afternoon.

So far, 43 bodies have been confirmed to be Chinese tourists, while Thai authorities are identifying the rest, Norraphat said.

He also said Phuket will improve boat safety measures in the near future to assure there is no repeat of such a tragedy.

Thai and Chinese rescue teams drove to check the sunken Phoenix on Wednesday, but their work was hampered by bad weather, Rear Admiral Charoenphol Koomrasee, deputy commander of the Third Fleet of the Royal Thai Navy, said during the press conference. (Xinhua)
