PHUKET:-- The investigation into the death of a diver working on the project to salvage the sunken Phoenix tour boat last week has stalled, with police accepting the official cause of death as a ‘lack of oxygen”.

 

Niphat ‘Joch’ Kludnak, 37,an employee of Spitz Tech Co Ltd, died after passing out and failling into the water from the back of the salvage boat on Sept 29.

 

Phuket Public Relations Department Chief Bussaya Chaipeum issued a statement three days later (Oct 2), stating that Mr Niphat died at 12:30pm on Sept 29 at the site where the sunken Phoenix lies on the seabed.
