A British tourist, age unknown, drowned earlier today (July 24) at a Patong beach [Phuket] in close proximity to where two other tourists, one an American and one from Mainland China, drowned in recent weeks. Tragically, the drowning of the British tourist occurred before 0830 hours, when lifeguards are posted.
