A long-tail boat capsized after foreign tourists arrived on an island in the Mu Ko Phi Phi National Park in Mueang Krabi.
The head of the Mu Ko Phi Phi National Park Mr. Yuttapong Damsrisuk told the Phuket Express that on Friday (November 17th) they were notified from staffers at the Mai Pai Island (Bamboo Island) about the incident. The long-tail boat was travelling with six foreign tourists from the Phi Phi Don Island to the Mai Pai Island.
The tourists had just arrived at the island and the boat and captain were waiting for the tourists near the beach when there was a strong wind and waves. As a result of the weather conditions, water leaked into the boat. The tourists were trying to help the boat captain not to let the boat sink. However, the boat finally capsized.
The foreign tourists were not injured. Another boat was called to pickup the tourists back to the Phi Phi Don Island after they finished their trip on the Mai Pai Island.
