Thai disaster management authorities on Friday said 18 tourists were found dead after two boats capsized near Thailand's southern island of Phuket, with 38 others still missing. The majority of those on board were Chinese tourists on a day trip from Phuket before their vessel got knocked over by 5m-high storm waves.

"There was a lot of debris, shoes, glass, and even personal belongings, so we had to navigate through all that", he said.
