A 64-year-old woman drowned this Sunday on the beach of the Fogones Municipal Park in the department Cologne. A man called the prefecture and asked for help for his drowned wife. He stated that he was in the water with the woman and once he looked where the woman was, he saw her floating face down. He managed to get her out of the water, but she was unconscious.
Mobile emergency doctors who arrived on site performed resuscitation maneuvers, but ultimately determined that the woman had died from drowning.
According to the Navy, the Colonia prosecutor took over the investigation into the case: she ordered a scientific report, a forensic pathologist, an interview with witnesses and an interview with the husband of the woman who lost her life.
