TOURIST DEATH: A British woman is reported dead in Dominican Republic
A BRITISH tourist died after swimming away from a beach on the north coast of the Dominican Republic on Saturday morning.
According to local media reports, Sian Louise Marshall-Plewes drowned at around 4am as she “cavorted” with her 20-year-old lover Jose Manuel Cordero near the Sosua Beach.
It is believed that Marshall-Plewes was hit by a “strong wave” which separated her from her boyfriend and inhaled water before passing out.
The water carried her body away, before Civil Defence volunteers later discovered her dead body elsewhere on the beach.
Marshall-Plewes had been staying at an apartment in Calle Llibre for only a week and was due to fly back to the UK on Sunday.
