Phuket Paratroopers will be invited to train parasailing operators in an effort to step up safety measures after an Australian tourist plunged to his death while flying on a parasailing chute into the sea at Kata Beach on July 12.

Governor Norapat Plodthong called a meeting of agencies and officials concerned on Friday in the wake of the incident that killed Roger John Hussey, 71.
