Phuket Weather Update 24th Feb / 2nd March 2014
Here is the latest weather report for those keeping a check on your next holiday destination. But before that here is a little local news.
A Myanmar (Burmese) national survived more than 12 hours alone in the sea by holding onto
The 21-year-old man, who identified himself as Poy, was pulled from the water by men on a longtail fishing boat at about noon on February 4 in Bo Phut, Koh Samui.
Mr Poy had been working on a construction site in Koh Pha Ngan. On Monday night, he and four friends were drinking on the beach.
“At about 11pm, my friend and I got into an argument. He started to attack me. He hit me hard on the shoulder with a three-inch woodenstick,” said Mr Poy.
“I ran for my life toward the water because I did not know where else to go.
“Fortunately, I found two coconuts on the beach. I grabbed them and held on tight as I knew I would not be able to swim with my injured arm. I had no idea where I was going,” he said.
“I held on to the coconuts all night and into the morning before a longtail boat picked me up.”
