The British woman passed while while on vacation with her husband in the southern Sicilian fishing resort of Punta Secca.
Unidentified lady decided to have a dip in the chilly, turbulent water, but she soon started to feel ill, according to local media.
She was able to escape the water and make it to the beach, but as soon as she saw her husband, she passed out.
After performing an autopsy, the medical examiner will decide the cause of death.
For a response, MailOnline has reached out to the UK Foreign Office.
After a 62-year-old British man passed away while vacationing with his wife on the Greek island of Crete, the woman’s death was reported.
The unidentified guy ventured near the water but retreated back to his sunbed close to his wife on Stalida beach after feeling uncomfortable. But he passed away when he was lying on the sunbed.
The guy was declared dead at the site when an ambulance was sent, according to local media. The cause of death is likely to be determined through an autopsy.
A 74-year-old British lady who was on vacation in Crete last month also drowned; her corpse was discovered on the Greek island’s beach on October 5.
Rescuers performed CPR on the lady for 30 minutes, but she remained unresponsive. General Hospital St. George, a nearby hospital, received her in a hurry, but she was later declared dead.
A 45-year-old British lady who had been feeling sick while swimming in the water off Albufeira, Portugal, passed away last month.
Medical personnel attempted to resuscitate the lady after she had fainted on the beach, but she passed away there.
