Driver of jet ski that killed Iranian tourist flees to Issan



Police are looking in Phitsanulok for Narong Meejang who they believe ran over and killed an Iranian tourist with a jet ski.

The Thai man who allegedly struck and killed an Iranian tourist with his jet ski allegedly has fled to Issan after an arrest warrant was issued.

Narong Meejang, 23, is suspected of running over Mohsen Fakharisaadat, 35, in the waters opposite Central Festival Pattaya Beach Oct. 6. Police found the jet ski, with bits of the Iranian’s hair still on the hull, but Narong had fled to Phitsanulok.

Pattaya Police Superintendent Col. Nanthawut Suwanla-Ong said the tourist was swimming outside the designated swim zone, but that charges of reckless driving leading to death would still be pursued.
