Mumbai couple drowns at Candolim


 Two tourists from Mumbai drowned off Candolim beach on Tuesday evening.
Drishti personnel said the married couple from Ulhasnagar, identified as Vijay and Mala Kumar, were swimming in a non-swim zone at 4.20 pm, and were at a distance of 30 metres from the shore when they found themselves unable to stay afloat.
Lifeguards were alerted by a foreigner who brought the husband to the shore. Both victims had consumed a lot of water and their vital signs were found to be absent.
Lifeguards attempted to resuscitate them to no avail. They were then shifted to the Candolim primary health centre where they were declared 'brought dead'. Their bodies were then shifted to the morgue at the Goa Medical College and Hospital. [TOI]
