Indian swimmer dies off Koh Larn


An Indian man died after striking his head on rocks off Koh Larn during strong currents.

Dannis Kashi, 28, suffered a fractured skull and other wounds in the Aug. 25 accident off Samae Beach.

Friends said Kashi and they were visiting Pattaya on vacation and wanted to enjoy Koh Larn’s beach. Kashi, however, couldn’t swim, so he rented a flotation device.

Strong currents moved the buoy quickly, however, and Kashi lost his balance as it moved near a group of rocks and fell off.
