Australian woman saves Thai woman from drowning at Phuket beach

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.

The man managed to get back to shore using a surfboard but the woman was stranded out at sea. One of the Australian women swam out to help her without any hesitation,” he said...
