French Family Rescued From Deep Forest In Phuket

Pattaya Daily News

Recommended Posts

A French family of four were rescued after spending an epic evening lost in thick forest on Baan Sakoo hill in Thalang.

Phuket – December 27,2013; The Letshon family members, named as Bill, 56, Ninon, 20, Rose, 19 and Elisa, 16, were reportedly trying to walk from Nai Yang Beach to Nai Thon, over the hill when they became lost.

The family phoned the 1155 tourist police hotline at around 6.30pm yesterday (December 26), but Tha Chatchai Police and Kusoldharm Rescue Foundation volunteers took a further two hours to find them because they were so far inland. One of the search parties eventually managed to locate the family.

The trail was so rough it then took the Letshon family and rescuers another four hours before they were safely out of the forest at around 12.30am today.

After speaking with the group, police said the family were staying at a hotel at Nai Yang Beach. After they had checked out, they decided to walk to Nai Yang to Nai Thon to look for another hotel, but instead became lost.

Police said the family were on their first trip to Phuket – no doubt a holiday they will remember for a long time.

In March this year Italian tourists Mirko Bolognini, 42, and Valentina Parisani, got lost in the Jungle on Khao Phra Taew but were safely rescued.

At the end of October 2012, a search involving 100 officers was launched in the same area to find British couple Mohammed Samir and Hanna Zareen Shaid. The couple called to say they were lost, but after that there were no more calls. They were found safe just after midnight.
