National park rangers are patrolling a river in Kanchaburi’s Sai Yok district today after a tourist was swept away and drowned while swimming there over the weekend.

Visitors are advised to exercise caution and wear life vests. The death of a number of swimmers in Kanchanaburi rivers have been recorded in recent years, including foreigners and Thai people who may underestimate strong current and river flows.

Further details of the missing person have not been made available to date.
