The spot where a boyfriend says ladyboy Nipol was swept away

Phuket Man Tells Police of Patong Ladyboy Swept to Death by Wave

Saturday, May 26, 2012
PHUKET: A Patong ladyboy was swept to her death yesterday by a wave as her boyfriend looked on helplessly, Phuket police have been told.

The alarm was sounded by Adul Matrpanya, 33, who telephoned Kathu Police Station, which oversees the Patong district, about 3pm yesterday.

He said his ladyboy girlfriend, Nipol Jomtarak, 25, had been swept from a rock at Laem Hin Tang, a low point by the ocean on the road between Patong and Kamala.

Khun Adul told police that he and his girlfriend had been having an argument. Khun Nipol had telephoned him and asked to meet him at the spot, he said.

But as he headed towards the point where she was sitting on a large rock, a wave came and swept her away, he said.

Khun Adul was in tears when police and Kusoldharm Foundation charity rescuers answered his call.

The pair, both from Isarn, worked in Patong.

Khun Nipol's body was found near the spot about 7pm and was taken to Patong Hospital.

Sad, the sea is a dangerous place and too many people take it for granted.
