The body of an 11-year-old boy was found on Wednesday morning on Nai Yang beach on the northwestern side of Phuket.


Five Thai boys had survived being washed into strong surf on Monday – they had either been saved or managed to get back to shore themselves – while the other Thai boy went missing at Laem Po off Nai Yang Beach around noon the same day.

The boy found on Wednesday has been identified as 11-year-old Sutat Jampatong, who was studying Pratom Suksa 5 at Wat Mongkol Wanaram School in Thalang.
