Cozumel, Q.R. — According to Riviera Maya News, an American woman was reported deceased while diving at a beach club in the southern hotel zone of the island of Cozumel.

Paramedics from a private clinic responded to a call from the Nachi-Cocom Beach Club after a woman was reported in critical condition. However, when medical personnel arrived, they found that the woman no longer showed vital signs.

The dive instructor from the group identified only as S.C., said that the American woman, identified as 68-year-old N.T. from New York, suffered complications while diving. When the instructor realized the woman was having problems, she was immediately taken out of the water, and emergency medical support was requested, but it was too late.

Paramedics reported the death to the C4 Command Center, and the Forensic Medical Service unit was sent to the site, along with members of the State Attorney General’s Office (FGE) to conduct the proper investigations and open the corresponding file.
