French Tourist Falls And Dies While Taking Selfie At Samui Waterfall

A 30-year-old French man died after falling from a waterfall while trying to take a selfie on Koh Samui last Thursday.

Police said Bastien Palmier fell from the top of Na Mueang Song Waterfall after ignoring warning signs not to climb the waterfasll.

Rescue volunteers took over three hours to retrieve the body.

A spokesman for the Tourist Police told reporters: “It took several hours to retrieve his body because the waterfall is slippery and steep,” he said by phone, adding that the spot is roped off and there is a sign warning tourists of the danger. “His friend said he was trying to take a selfie and then he slipped and fell”.
