A French tourist has fallen to his death from a 260ft waterfall while trying to take a selfie. The event happened on the 15th of November at the Na Mueng 2 waterfall, Thailand.
The Police said the French holiday-maker was with a friend, Thomas Mechin, who witnessed the incident.
According to Poowadol Wiriyanarangkul, a Sumui tourist police officer, a Spanish tourist had died in the same spot several months ago.
“There are already signs saying ‘No entry’ as the area is quite dangerous. Some tourists may want to get better photos, but it’s quite steep and slippery there and he slipped. A friend that accompanied him saw the man take pictures and fall’’ about a height equivalent to a three-storey house, he said.
The Police have already contacted the relatives of the deceased. Even though a preliminary coroner’s report is yet to be given, Police believe the tourist died of a fractured skull.
