A 66-year-old South Korean tourist drowned Wednesday afternoon while snorkelling near the Paradise Resort.
She was brought from the resort island to the ADK hospital in Malé around 5 pm, police told the media.
According to some reports, she died while undergoing emergency treatment.
It was the second drowning accident of a tourist this year. A couple from the Philippines drowned Sunday morning while swimming near the Dhiffushi Island in Kaafu Atoll.
The couple, who was reportedly on their honeymoon, was staying at a guesthouse on the inhabited island.
