A project manager from Hampstead Garden Suburb has been drowned in a rip tide off the coast of Koh Samui island in Thailand.

Max Tenenbaum, 30, was on holiday in the island resort with his younger brother Jason when he died at the weekend.

A spokesman for the Foreign Office said:“We are in touch with the local authorities and are providing consular assistance to the family.”

Mr Tenenbaum was a pupil of Christ’s College Finchley secondary school and graduated from Leeds University with a degree in computing in 2007.

Friends and relatives paid tribute to the project manager, who worked for e-commerce company Paraspar in Edgware, on social networking site Facebook.

Former classmate Farzard Peyman-Shah said: “Unbelievably sad. Known him since primary school and always been a top mate when we were younger.

“Never a bad word to say about him and don’t know anyone who ever did. RIP Max.”

Mr Tenenbaum’s cousin said: “I just wish you could come back cuz :( you were the most amazing guy ever, I will pray every night for you. I miss you. RIP Max Tenenbaum.”
