An Australian and a Myanmar tourist have been rescued after a long-tailed boat engine was malfunctioned near an island in Krabi.
The Krabi Marine Police told the Phuket Express this week they were notified of the incident by a long-tailed boat captain, Mr. Jamnean Butmueangm, 56. He told police that the long-tailed boat engine was loosened from the boat in the strong waves and was unable to control the boat.
The Krabi Marine Police found the boat and found that there were four people on board, the captain, his wife Mrs. Dennapa Luesopa, 48, Mr. Norrish Linton, 53, an Australian national and Mrs. Lwin lwin Pesse, 51, a Myanmar national. They were travelling from a hotel in Railay Bay to visit nearby islands.
When they arrived near Poda Island, a strong wave hit the boat before the engine was loosened from the boat. The captain then called the Krabi Marine Police for help. All of them are safe.
