Emergency services in Spain’s Nerja were dispatched to the sea after several witnesses spotted a woman’s body floating in the water.
The incident happened at around 9.15 am, according to a spokesman for Emergencias 112.
The woman was pulled out from the water by attending medical services along with help from Nerja Local Police, Civil Protection and Guardia Civil. She was pronounced dead at the scene.
According to police, the woman – believed to be around 50 – was of foreign descent and her belongings were found on the nearby sand.
Local police suggested that the woman “must have felt unwell” while swimming.
It appears that the officers ruled out foul play, however, the body was taken to the Institute of Legal Medicine in Malaga, where a cause of death will be determined.
