A tourist was killed after falling 250ft down a Thai waterfall when he tried to take pictures. Radwan Sbih, 27, lost his footing after climbing up near the notorious Na Mueang waterfall , on the island of Koh Samui.

The accident highlighted lax safety rules in the tourism sector and authorities have been scrambling to restore the country's image since.
