Bereaved father pleads with tourists to take precautions after his son dies in Koh Tao

A bereaved father has contacted the Samui Times after his son lost his life on a snorkel tour on the notorious island of Koh Tao on March 18th 2019. Sanjai Jain got in touch with the Samui Times when, to his surprise, no Thai news channels covered the story of his son’s death.   Samyak Choudhary, a qualified Software Engineer, graduated in 2017 from premier Indian Institute, Indian Institute of Technology, Roorkee, India. He was working with a fast growing technology driven company , namely 1 MG Technologies Private Limited, Gurugarm, India. He and his friend decided to visit Koh Tao, while they were there Samyak took part in a snorkeling tour with Oxygen Tour Koh Tao. This was Samyak’s first visit to Thailand. Although Samyak was not an experienced snorkeler he could certainly swim and was looking forward to discovering Koh Tao’s marine life. While on the tour to Ao Hin Wong Bay Samyak was seen motionless floating on the water by another tourist on the same tour. The tourist alerted one of the tour guides and he was taken from the water onto the boat where CPR was successfully administered.  He was taken and admitted to Koh Samui hospital for treatment but medical reports suggest that he was already brain dead from prolonged lack of oxygen to the brain. He was then taken to the Bangkok Hospital for further treatment, sadly he was declared dead on the 24th March 2019. One aspect of his son’s death Sanjai has not been able to explain is why there was blood coming out of the nose of his son and no explanation by the tour guides or medical staff has been forthcoming. While Sanjai did not immediately think there was anything in the way of foul play this is one fact...
