Full Moon Party tradegy

I had a good time at the Full Moon Party, and would love to go back. However, I think about my traveling and often remember a tradegy.
Through the entire night of having fun and meeting people on the crowded beach people will fall asleep or go swinging in or near the ocean water. I remember I was walking from one spot on the beach to another spot (during the actual fullmoon party) and I see two people dragging a limp body from the water to the sand. It looked to be a young male. And immediately a crowd came around on one person started doing CPR.. Everyone was nervous and you could feel the uneasyness in the air. I was praying in my head for the poor boy. The CPR kept on for about 15 minutes and everyone realized that the boy was not going to make it. He looked to be in his 20's and I just remember thinking that he was probably like me and went on a trip for a vacation. I felt so bad, and remember thinking someone was going to have to tell his mom he would be coming home....It ruined my trip, and I heard the next day that like 6 people died at that FMP....From what I understand it was either swimming or falling asleep when the tide comes in.
