Pattaya's Marine Safety Control posted a video on Facebook of the rescue of a 40 - 45 year old foreign tourist who had jumped into the sea at the Bali Hai port. 

 

No one knew where he was from but a rescue official could be heard saying on the video that the man was drunk. 

 

He was eventually fished out using a rope and just had a few scrapes from barnacles. 

 

A witness said he had jumped in to get a shirt belonging to a female companion that had blown into the sea. 

 

Then he couldn't get out. 

 

The tourist had just returned from a day trip on a boat.
