PHUKET: A search-and-rescue operation was launched late this afternoon after a Singaporean tourist slipped from the rocks at Phuket’s iconic Promthep Cape and plunged into the waves below.

Officers at the Phuket Tourist Rescue Center were notified of the incident at 5:40pm.

“Two Singaporean men slipped on the wet rocks and fell from the famous cape in Rawai this afternoon,” one rescue officer told the Phuket Gazette.
