Brit woman, 36, dies after jumping into swimming pool

A BRITISH woman has died after jumping into a swimming pool on Spain’s Costa Blanca.

The 36-year-old reportedly suffered convulsions at around 1.20pm on Friday in Orihuela.

Emergency crews spent 45 minutes trying to resuscitate her but she was sadly pronounced dead at the scene.

An autopsy is due to take place but local reports said the unnamed woman suffered from epilepsy.

It is not clear if she was on holiday or lived in the residential area known as Entrenaranjos.

A routine inquiry, headed by the Civil Guard force and co-ordinated by a local investigating judge, has already been launched.
