Pattaya Ferry Flips

 A ferry packed with tourists returning from a day-trip to the popular island of Larn, 10 km off shore from Pattaya, sank in open sea, Sunday,  killing six people.
Police Colonel, Suwan Cheawnavinthavat, said at least six people including three foreign passengers drowned, and 16 were seriously injured after the overcrowded tourist ferry capsized just minutes after it had left the sheltered waters of Larn Island.

The double-decker ferry capsized after suffering engine problems. Within minutes other ferries in the area rushed to the scene to rescue 209 passengers.
