Woman dies after being pulled from the sea in Brighton
A woman has tragically died after being rescued from the sea in Brighton, despite the efforts of emergency crews to revive her.
Emergency services arrived at Brighton Marina near the pier after receiving calls about a woman in the water at around 4.30pm.
The coastguard from Brighton and Shoreham, along with police and ambulance crews, rushed to the scene in an attempt to save the woman.
A coastguard helicopter from Lee-on-the-Solent in Hampshire was also dispatched and landed on the beach.
According to an eyewitness who spoke to The Argus, the emergency workers performed CPR on the woman for “quite a long time”. The woman was then carried away on a stretcher by the emergency workers.
However, it was later confirmed that she had passed away.
The death is not being treated as suspicious, Sussex Police have confirmed.
A spokesperson stated that they conducted a search on the beach and found the woman’s body.
The woman’s next of kin have since been informed of her passing.
This tragic incident highlights the dangers of swimming in the sea, particularly during the colder months when the water temperature is low.
The emergency crews involved in the rescue attempt did their utmost to save the woman’s life, but sadly their efforts were not successful.
It is a reminder of the bravery and dedication of those who work in the emergency services and the risks they take to save lives.
