BANGKOK, (Xinhua): A tour boat capsized and sank near Thailand’s popular seaside town Pattaya on Sunday, killing six tourists, including a Chinese.

The double-decker ferry left Koh Lan island for a 30-minute trip to Pattaya Sunday evening. It carried more than 200 Thai and foreign passengers, above its 130-150 capacity, the Bangkok Post reported.

An engine problem occurred shortly after the boat departed. Passengers on the first deck rushed to the second floor, causing the boat to flip on one side and eventually sink.

The Chinese embassy in Thailand confirmed that one Chinese died in the accident
