Casualties at Sea Walker Tour in Pattaya

In response to a serious incident involving an Indian tourist, the Pattaya tourist police inspected a Sea Walker business, a popular water activity attraction. The tourist sustained serious injuries while participating in the Sea Walker tour and required immediate medical attention at Bangkok Pattaya Hospital. During the Sea Walker activity, tourists wear helmets that provide air while they explore the bottom of a relatively shallow area of the Pattaya Gulf.

Police Lieutenant Colonel Piyaphong Ensarn, along with Pol. Lt. Col. Suparat Meepreecha and Pol. Lt. Col. Apichart Jarurak, led the investigation. The team examined two boats associated with the attraction: the Marine Diving Service paddle boat and the Kong Samut 8 boat, both located near the Koh Sak area in Chonburi Province. The inspection revealed that the Marine Diving Service paddle boats had valid licenses, but eight foreign workers were present. Further examination showed that six of these workers were Cambodians who had entered the country illegally and did not have work permits or visas. Consequently, the six suspects were taken into custody by the Tourist Police for legal proceedings.

Authorities have emphasized the importance of tourist safety awareness, as any incidents can significantly impact the local tourism industry. As of press time, the Indian tourist remains in serious condition at a local hospital and is on a breathing machine. Police are keeping the exact details of the accident and the name of the tourist under wraps, citing an ongoing investigation.
