Woman drowns in Portland
The body of an unidentified female was fished from the sea near Foreshore Road in Port Antonio this morning by a team from the Portland Municipal Corporation.
The woman, who was wearing black underwear and brassier, was pronounced dead at hospital.
Several eyewitnesses claim that the woman, who is of a brown complexion and is believed to be in her mid-thirties, was wearing a pair of jean pants and white blouse just before she entered the murky water shortly after 10:00 a.m.
It is further reported that she went to the back of a bathroom where she stripped down to her undergarments before going for a swim.
While in the water she reportedly encountered a struggle and became submerged.
An alarm was raised and personnel from the municipal corporation's enforcement team responded and removed the body from the sea.
The Portland Police are investigating.
