A Russian man died during a boat trip to Islands off the coast of Sattahip on Tuesday afternoon. The boat had been hired by a group of 11 Russian tourists who were being taken to Lin Island and on the way would be given a tour of the smaller Islands in the vicinity. By the time the group had reached their destination, they had been drinking heavily on the boat. They anchored 500 meters off the coast of Lin Island and Mr. Dmitry Klimchenko aged 41 decided he was going to swim to shore. He jumped in and began to swim but soon got into difficulties and went under the water. He was eventually rescued and CPR was attempted without success. According to his wife, Mrs.Svetlana Klimchenko aged 37, her Husband was suffering from a congenital heart disease and this, in combination with the heavy drinking, is expected to have contributed to his death, however a post mortem examination at the Police Forensic Institute in Bangkok will take place while the Russian Embassy in Bangkok assist Mr. Klimchenko’s family with repatriating the body.
