An Australian woman drowned after an aging couple ignored no swimming flags and went for a dip on Sunday afternoon.
The lifeguards managed to save the husband but it took longer to locate the wife and bring her to shore.
Despite CPR performed by Kamala Rescue and tourists helping out she was already dead when an ambulance arrived to take her to Patong hospital.
The incident happened opposite the Kamala police station and lifeguards told police that the tourists had entered the water despite there being red flags forbidding swimming due to the stormy weather and high waves.
They said a large wave carried the couple out and only the husband could be saved, reported Daily News.
