CLEARWATER, Fla. (AP) - A 62-year-old woman drowned while swimming off Clearwater Beach with her husband.
The Tampa Bay Times (http://bit.ly/17v3B9W ) reports the husband noticed the current in the Gulf of Mexico was getting stronger as they swam Monday evening. He returned to shore while his wife continued swimming. He later told authorities that his wife was a stronger swimmer.
At some point, she got into trouble. A Clearwater Fire & Rescue crew found the woman's body around 7:30 p.m. and began CPR. The boat was in the area conducting dive training for local police and firefighters.
The woman was taken to Morton Plant Hospital, where she was pronounced dead.
Her name has not been released.
