Russian tourist drowned in Hersonissos

A 54 year old tourist from Russia drowned in Hersonissos this morning, when she was swimming with her 24 year old daughter.

Both of them were in Crete for summer holidays.

Strong winds and large waves created a highly dangerous situation.

Her daughter barely managed to get out of the water, but her mother was not so lucky.

An ambulance transfered her in local Medical Center, where doctors said that she was dead.

Her body was transferred to the University Hospital of Heraklion for an autopsy and a dissection.
