PHUKET, 14 July 2017 (NN) – Phuket province has stepped up measures after an Australian man was killed in a fatal parasailing accident on Kata Beach, temporarily ordering a stop to the activity while better safety precautions are sought.
Phuket Governor Noraphat Plodthong remarked on the death of a 71 year old Australian man who fell while parasailing off Kata Beach and ultimately died from his injuries, saying that a meeting has been held to discuss the incident but definite measures have yet to be decided. A stumbling block of the meeting was that parasailing is considered a sport under law and does not require the same licensing as activities deemed solely for leisure.
