Foreign tourist rescued from water at Pattaya Pier after jumping in to get a dropped shirt

A foreign man has been pulled up from the water at the Bali Hai Pier in Pattaya last night, Sunday, August 4, 2019.

Officers at the pier last night pulled a foreign man from the water after he decided to jump down from the pier.

The man tried to come up from the water by himself several times according to witnesses and the Marine Safety Control Division of Pattaya City but failed as he was too weak.
