A BRITISH tourist collapsed and died at a beach just moments after she got out of the ‘cold’ sea.
The 65-year-old woman had just finished swimming in Punta Secca, Sicily, where she was on holiday with her husband.
According to local media, the woman decided to go for a swim even though the sea was “cold and rough” on Friday.
But she immediately felt ill and even though she managed to get out of the water, she collapsed in front of her husband.
Emergency services rushed to the beach but the woman was pronounced dead at the scene.
An autopsy will determine her cause of death.
It comes as another British tourist died on a sunbed after falling ill while on holiday in Greece.
The 62-year-old was enjoying the sun in Crete with his wife when he decided to go for a swim on the beach of Stalida.
He returned to the sunbed after feeling unwell and died as he lied down.
An ambulance was called and the man was pronounced dead at the scene.
And last month a British woman died after feeling unwell as she walked out to sea in Portugal.
The 45-year-old tourist complained about feeling unwell after getting out of the water at Penedo beach in Albufeira.
