A Korean man fell unconscious after going diving at the Similan National Park in Phang Nga.

The Royal Thai Navy told the Phuket Express that over the past weekend they were notified from a boat operator that a 41-year-old Korean man fell unconscious and was not breathing after he finished a dive at Eight Island in the national park area.
