On 7th July 2012, the Naval Operations Center Region 3 Phuket received notification of a Chinese lady in need of assistance at Koh Racha Yai.
The lady, 29 year old Mrs. Jin Giuping had fainted during a snorkeling trip with her husband, Mr. Zhen Shuguang. The Emergency Rescue Team of Vachira Hospital received information about the Phuket tourist in trouble, who in-turn contacted Naval Operations Center Region 3. The Center sent a Navy Helicopter to Koh Racha Yai, which managed to take Mrs Giuping from Koh Racha Yai to Vachira Hospital, where Mrs Giuping is now recovering.
The couple had arrived in Phuket on 6 July and had planned to go back home on 10 July 2012.
