Here sinks tourist boat off the coast of Thailand .

In the pictures shows how terrified people are forced to throw himself into the water to save their lives .

- It went incredibly fast and was followed by a frantic rescue work , said Dive Instructor Dennis Karlsson, 46.

 The accident occurred between the islands of Koh Bon and Koh Tachai north of the Similan Islands in Thailand.

The dive boat Aladdin was filled with tourists when the accident occurred .

North of Similan in south of Thailand ship suddenly began to take on water , at noon local time on Wednesday.

dramatic scenes

Swedish Dive Instructor Dennis Karlsson was on a similar boat nearby and witnessed the incident. He says that the captain of the boat accident sent out a distress call .

- It was just a coincidence that our boat was there and could come to the rescue , he said.

He tells me about the quick progress.

In just a few minutes could Aladdin capsize and sink 80 feet down to the bottom.

- It was really, really serious. It brought in a lot of water, says Dennis Karlsson.

Many jump

In a video that Aftonbladet can show seen how tourists jumping off the boat in panic. While screaming passengers aboard the other boat of horror.

- People threw themselves headlong into the water. Some disappeared under the surface with the boat before they were pulled . It was really the hair that everyone survived , said Dennis Karlsson.

No people should be according to Dennis Karlsson injured in boat accident .

- But people were very uptight . Those who came aboard our boat was very grateful , he says.

Hit up the hull

According to Dennis Karlsson fought accident hull down while driving.

- We were told that the accident was because it was something that had gone into the propeller and turned up the hull , he says.

Dennis Karlsson, who works as a diving instructor semiannually in Thailand, do not give precise nationalities of the tourists on board the Aladdin but confirms that several were Nordic .

He states that the tourists on board the Aladdin was out on a four-day dive trip in the Andaman Sea on the basis of the popular resort of Khao Lak.

On board the boat where Dennis Karlsson was, Peter Pan, there were a number of Swedish tourists who witnessed the dramatic event

Frightening indeed. I wonder if everyone survived.
Why the screaming? According to the article, it came from the passengers on the rescue boat (and must have interfered with the rescue). People are strange.

So this was a tourist dive boat.  Diving = knowing how to swim.  I'll go ahead and wager that there were flotation devices on board.  The weather was nice, there was another boat right there, why ere these people screaming and freaking out?  Put on a PFD, get in the water, dog paddle 10 feet away to make room for the next guy, wait patiently three minutes as the other boat picks you up.  Seriously the panic was more dangerous than the boat sinking.

Maybe they were worried about their phones and iPads getting ruined, who knows?

The poster is right.

You shouldn't freak out and you shouldn't start screaming at the top of your lungs like an idiot. You're just making the situation worse and making it more difficult for people to communicate with one another.

While it may sound insensitive, people need to calm down and stop overreacting like they do. People like those in the video who freak out and start screaming make the situation that much more dangerous for everyone involved.

Like somebody already mentioned, the screaming may have made it that much more difficult for a rescuer to hear somebody's call for help or for communication necessary to co-ordinate the rescue effort.

Stop screaming like an idiot and do something to actually help the situation.

True, but I can hardly blame someone for being utterly useless in an emergency, and being an emotional wreck instead.  Lots of people don't do well under that kind of pressure.

Still doesn't deter from the fact that you're making the situation worse and your being selfish by not keeping control over yourself.

Completely understand it's not an easy thing to keep control of your emotions during a traumatic and/or emotional situation. But when you loose control and give in to the panic, you're just being selfish and making it that much more of a dangerous/hectic situation for everyone around you.

You may not blame them, but I would. I'll understand why you lost control but at the same time I'll challenge you take responsibility for your actions and better yourself so next time you're not screaming at the top of your lungs and acting like a fool.

The dive boat Aladdin with 13 on board was not registered and operating near the park illegally, officials told Phuketwan.
... The wooden hull of the boat was holed and the Aladdin tipped then sank, with people scrambling to get off.
... trigger a closer investigation of illegal boats that are said to operate in the Similans region with corrupt payments made to renegade marine park rangers.

http://www.phuketgazette.net/phuket_news/2014/No-salvage-for-sunken- Si milan-dive-boat-24454.html
Liveaboard dive boat MV The Flying Carpet will remain on the sea floor, 75 meters below the Andaman Sea surface, after sinking yesterday
"There will be no salvage possibility," said the manager of Aladdin Dive Safari, the company that owned the boat.
... When asked about insurance, the manager, who asked to be identified only as Frank, confirmed to the Gazette that there would be no payout.

The ship sank on a calm day near the Similan National Park after an entangled rope partially ripped its propeller out.

"It had nothing to do with the boat. We got a rope in the propeller that actually broke the propeller off, not all the way, but that's why water came inside the boat too [fast] to pump it out," Frank, still in shock, explained.

Just wanted to throw my two cents in that the posters criticizing the screaming retard are absolutely correct. Having survived a sinking vessel myself before without losing my goddamn mind, nor the others that were also present, I can definitely say it would have been much more dangerous to everyone on the craft and in the water if we weren't able to hear others over the useless screaming of some lunatic who isn't even in danger. Been in other situations where there were useless screaming bystanders as well and I really wanted to punch them in the farking mouth. Get a hold of yourself, you nitwits.

I agree with BillTheCat.

Good weather, you'd think everyone on a dive boat knows how to swim, rescue boat right there....no biggie.  Perhaps my lack of understanding is that I've spend many a day on the water, flipped small sailboats, and been thrown off a fast moving sailboat.  Ya chill, ya float, and address the issue.  It's all good fun and you'd have one hell of a story to tell.

Doesn't sound like you read his post so I'll make it easy for you. He basically said, when comparing his own actions to how he thinks others should be able to magically behave in similar circumstances, "Since I know how to be calm under extreme duress, I expect others to behave in the exact same manner".

/I spent quite some time in the Army and pretty much also know what "duress" is...and that not everyone acts the same way under extreme circumstances.

As for the vid.. does screaming that loud really make it sink slower?

No, but it interferes with communication. If someone is screaming in your ear, you might be distracted from the poor sod whose PFD has just come off, and they're about to take the big dive.
According to the article, the screaming  came from the people on the rescue boat, not the people who had every right to scream.
The captain of the Carpathia understood this kind of thing, and kept his own passengers out of the way.

Perhaps they should've thrown the screamer into the sinking vessel.  All that hot air she was putting out might refloated the damn thing.

In the middle of having a car accident I yelled at my screaming now-soon-to-be-ex-wife to shut the fark up while we were pinballing around on the black ice, looking into on coming traffic, with the deployed air bag sitting in my lap like a rough, used condom.
