Israeli tourist ignores waterfall warnings, plunges 250 ft to death on Koh Samui

Thailand is Cambodia's neighbor to the West, and this forum is dedicated to Thai news, stories, reviews, blogs, videos, Thai people and anything else related to the country. A lot of expats have both lived and worked in Cambodia and Thailand, and this area is a place to discuss all aspects of life in Thailand and what's going on there. Most topics are about Bangkok and Pattaya because of their larger populations of expatriates and tourists in those cities, but this is for all things Thai.

Israeli tourist ignores waterfall warnings, plunges 250 ft to death on Koh Samui

Tourist dies after ‘ignoring warnings’ and falling 250ft down Koh Samui waterfall
December 30, 2017
A tourist drowned yesterday after ‘ignoring warnings’ at a notorious waterfall and falling 250ft to his death – while trying to take pictures.

Radwan Sbih, 27, had been with three friends when they walked through the jungle to the top of the treacherous Na Mueang waterfall on holiday island Koh Samui. In July, Paul Nicholls was injured at a nearby waterfall while a second British tourist Luke Scott narrowly survived plunging down the same beauty spot.

Radwan, from Jerusalem in Israel, clambered over rocks to take pictures of the idyllic scenery but lost is footing after slipping on the wet surface.
The holidaymaker’s friends watched in horror as he was swept away by the raging waters – deadly after weeks of heavy rain.

Radwan’s body was repeatedly smashed into jagged rocks and held under the water before it came to rest trapped in the rapids some around 1,000ft down stream...

Those two in the background may be Palestinians , cause they are not looking distraught.

His name suggests he belongs to the Arab population of Israel (which makes up about 20% of the population)

A fool & his life are soon parted.

Lesson for tourists. Don't ignore warnings, your life is the most precious thing.
