Woman killed by tour boat off Carvoeiro beach

coastviewAlgarveA woman from Belarus, swimming with her husband off Praia do Paraíso near Carvoeiro, died of her injuries on Tuesday, August 15th, after being driven over by a tour boat, which immediately fled the scene of the accident.

The woman was helped to the beach and then taken to Ferragudo by lifeboat where an INEM medical team battled to save her life, but without success and declared her dead at the scene.

The out-of-the-way beach where the couple was swimming is unsupervised and hard to get to.

Maritime Police and Judicial Police are investigating the incident with the Ports authority reminding swimmers and all boat captains to be on the look-out for each other at this crowded time of year.
