Pattaya Park Water Park

Recommended Posts

This is a news article about the tragic death of a young English boy who drowned at Pattaya Park water park. It sounds like safety standards are appalling. Be warned, this is a distressing story. I imagine this will put a lot of people off visiting the place - my wife is frightened that the same thing could happen to her if it happens to a 14 year old boy who looked bigger and stronger than her. We will never be going again.

 

Our sympathies go out to the family of the young boy.

guys... did you see the pics?

 

how should this happen? if he could lift the pump cover, then probably he also should have been strong enough to swim against the current...

 

the whole story looks completely strange to me, but i dont see any reason why to not go there anymore... probably this boy wanted to commit suicide... or he was killed by somebody else... or whatever... we will probably knever know... but shit this could never happen without a lot of action of somebody... just think about that the cover was closed afterwards again...

 

honestly... probably you shouldnt be able to pick up such a pump cover, but ... no way this could happen to anyone... i have no idea why i should be "afraid" to go there...

This is truly awful for all concerned. My sympathy to the family and friends of the boy.

 

I see on Pattaya One News today there is an update saying the park have accepted liability and have offered a compensation deal to the family.

 

I can only imagine there is obvious negligence by the park operators. Many of the pattaya news pics centre around the cover of the whirpool that has been taken away.

I been there and was amazed at how run down it is.

Very sad story.

 

Here is a Sky news report

Also this from thaianxiety

 

 

Nathan's father, Jim Clark, a tunnel engineer, had dived in to try and save him after Nathan's elder brother Rhys, 15, raised the alarm, but he could find no trace of his son. Nathan's body was finally found after engineers opened a water gate in the pump room.

 

Jim Clark hit out at a Thai cameraman after they tried to film his son's body on the floor of the pump room, lashing at one with a spanner. Thai police have subsequently ordered him to pay 12,000 baht compensation.

ever try to swim AGAINST a rip tide or river rapids dude? even the strongest swimmers go down trying that.

 

 

this isn't going to help Patt's "family image" very much.

Incidentally, I could not see any locks on The Grill at the bottom of the pool. It looks like anyone could try to lift it. I hope young Nathan's death makes them put some locks on The Grill.

    • For those that don't know, I did Friday meetings before many years ago,  I feel like we are missing a regular meeting for members,  I am aware guys meet at PA affiliated bars. But I want to start meeting people again, I'm inviting the guys following my YouTube also.

      The meetings is a chance to get to meet each other,  I plan to be at every meeting, I also have Dean from Dive bar that has offered to help out with a crawl after.
      The meetings will be  Monday  6 pm - 8 pm each week.  (The improvised bar crawl will commence at 8 p.m.  Dean will make his own plans for that.)

      Due to low numbers of people in town, I will start the meetings in our bars to help our girls and managers, please check back often incase things are changed.  I will be sharing the love around town later, but Soi 6 is first on my list (including bars that are friendly competition)   
      If bar owners want us to have a meeting at their bar,  they need to have a minimum of 10 girls.  I'm not dragging people to empty bars for favours.
      Please help us invite other members, it takes a while to get momentum.
      Monday 6 pm - 8pm  (then bar crawl after)
      21st March - Playpen Soi 6
      28th March - Night wish bar Soi 6
      4th April - Toy Box bar Soi 6
      11th April - Repent Soi 6
      18th April - where angels play Soi 6
      25th April -  (next bar we have open)

      2nd May - (next bar we have open)
      9th May - Cooters bar soi 6 
      16th May - Hot shots bar Soi 6
      23rd May - (next bar we have open)
