Brunei woman drowns near Krabi
A 60-year-old Brunei woman, Jamilah Othman, drowned at Koh Gai in the Had Nopparat Thara National Park. Apparently she lost consciousness while wearing a life vest swimming yesterday.
She was brought onshore at the Nam Mao Bay Pier and given further CPR.
Her husband went to Krabi Hospital to pick up her body today for the funeral.
She was travelling with a long-tail boat and the tour guide said that she fainted while swimming in the sea. National park officers gave her CPR but failed to revive her.
An Ao Nang ambulance took her from the pier to Krabi Hospital where she was pronounced dead.
The authorities say they are trying to assist her husband and have contacted the Brunei Embassy to report the incident.
