Caption: The hero who sacrificed his life
A relative of the 25 year old Thai man who died while saving two 15 year olds in trouble in the surf at Nang Ram beach Sattahip on Sunday told Sanook what happened.
Jiranuch, 37 said she had gone with Wuthichai, 25 and his wife and small child to the beach for a day out.
But when Wuthichai heard that two teens were struggling in the waves he rushed into the water to save them.
A 15 year old girl and boy among a group of several others playing in the water were saved.
But Wuthichai was swept out to sea by a fresh, larger wave.
He was found by divers later submerged 200 meters out to sea.
Thai media showed heart-wrenching pictures of Wuthichai's relatives grieving on the shore.
