PHUKET: Police have yet to establish what caused a 27-year-old Iraqi tourist to die after he fell from his jet-ski at Naka Island, off the east coast of Phuket, yesterday afternoon.

Mariwan Qader Salim, 27, from Iraq, was pronounced dead by doctors at Thalang Hospital at 5pm, Thalang Police Deputy Superintendent Kitthiphum Thinthalang told the Phuket Gazette.

“He was staying at a resort in Patong and went to Koh Naka on a day-trip,” Lt Col Kitthiphum explained.
