A foreign tourist, who is a licensed medical doctor, rescued a Russian tourist from drowning at Patong Beach.
Patong lifeguards told the Phuket Express that yesterday (January 11th), at 4:50 P.M. a female Russian tourist was struggling in the seawater. Foreign tourists who saw the incident helped to pull her up to the beach.
The female Russian tourist was unconscious and had no pulse. A male foreign tourist and Patong lifeguards provided help and CPR to the Russian woman before her pulse was detected again. She was rushed to the Patong Hospital.
The Patong lifeguard said thank you to the male foreign tourist who is a doctor for his help in the incident.
The helpful tourist declined to be identified stating that he isn’t a hero and only helping those in need.
