An elderly Dutchman died after apparently drowning off Pattaya Beach.

Arnoldus Wilhelmus Gerardus, 78, was pulled from the water near Soi 12 June 30. Rescuers found indications he had suffered a head injury.

Beach masseuse Kritsana Chumpathong said she saw Gerardus swimming and later heard his wife shouting that he was drowning. Beachgoers jumped into to save him and administered CPR, but it was too late.

The victim’s body was sent to the Forensics Institute for final determination.
