Kusoldharm rescue workers were notified of the incident at the Klong Katha reservoir behind Wat Luang Pu Supa (Silsuparam Temple) at 4pm. On arrival they spoke to 23-year-old Myanmar national called Joe, who told them that he and his friend, 25- year-old Ao, had gone swimming in the 11-metre-deep reservoir. Ao apparently became exhausted and disappeared under the water.
Rescuers failed to find Ao and the search was called off at midnight. It will continue today.
