Swedish woman drowns in Cyprus

A 75-year-old Swedish woman drowned on Thursday at a beach in Protaras, Cyprus, police confirmed.

Police said the woman who is yet to be named, lost consciousness while swimming before she was spotted by bathers who managed to drag her ashore.

She was rushed to Paralimni hospital, where doctors pronounced her dead upon arrival.

A preliminary inspection ruled out foul play and a full autopsy will be carried out Friday.
