Foreigner ends up swimming after Lanta ferry
A foreign woman jumped into the sea in Krabi chasing a departing ferry.
The boat captain Jennarong Srisuksai said: “She was travelling with her boyfriend. They were too late for the car ferry.
“When the boat was already moving away from the pier at Koh Lanta, the woman leapt out of the car and jumped towards the boat but ended up in the water.
“Other passengers on the boat were stunned. Luckily she could swim. Another boat pulled her out of the water.
“Locals say that many foreigners are disappointed as they have to wait for a long time for the ferry, especially in the high season. Some of them miss the ferry and then miss their flights.
“We think that the woman was angry as she had been waiting for the boat for a long time and was disappointed that they couldn’t fit on the departing boat.”
