The 33-year-old man died on Thursday after slipping and falling from the Na Mueang 2 waterfall on the Thai island of Koh Samui – the same place where a Spanish tourist died in a fall in July, AFP news reports the agency reported.
"His friend said he tried to take a selfie and then he slipped and fell," said Lieutenant Phuvadol Viriyavarangkul from the island's tourism policy to AFP.
