CityNews – A member of a Chinese tour group hiking in Ban Huay Sathan, Mae Taeng, drowned after turbulent water caught her off guard during a flash flood.

 

The incident occurred around 5pm on September 5, after eleven Chinese tourists were hiking in Mae Taeng, accompanied with a local guide. During the expedition, the hike passed a small river when a flash flood hit the group causing five Chinese tourists to fall into the river. Four of the five that fell into the river managed to swim to safety but a 26-year-old woman was overcome by the strong currents and was taken away from the group. Rescue teams found her body 500m downstream. She drowned in the strong flood water.
