A 65-year-old Austrian woman died in the sea at Playa del Duque, in the Costa Adeje, just before 3pm this afternoon. Emergency services say that they were called out after fellow bathers pulled her from the water near to some rocks. Paramedics found her in cardiac arrest, a clear and recognized symptom of cold water shock, and took over attempts being made to resuscitate her by her rescuers, one of whom was a medical doctor. These efforts continued even as she was being transferred to the Quiron Costa Adeje Hospital, but to no avail, and sadly she was pronounced dead on arrival. Please be aware of how cold the sea is right now, and how rough it can be too at times of weather alerts.
