Police have confirmed that a Filipina has died after being fished out of Deepwater Bay by lifeguards last  night at about 7:00pm. She was taken unconscious to the hospital where she was later declared dead. 

The police said that after preliminary investigation “personnel believe the subject accidentally drowned while swimming at the site.

A police spokesperson confirmed her nationality, but said they had no record of her occupation. However, a number of her friends who commented online about her death identified her as a foreign domestic helper who hailed from Mallig, Isabela.


One fellow Filipina who happened to be at the beach at the same time said the victim was in the water for about an hour before she was rescued. She shared a picture of the victim being shielded by lifeguards while being given first-aid.

The police report said a lifeguard called for help after the woman was found in the water about 20 meters from the shore.

She was said to be comatose when rushed to Ruttonjee Hospital in Wanchai where she was later confirmed dead. An autopsy will be carried out to determine the exact cause of her death.

Reports say a similar incident happened at the same site three days earlier, when a 91-year-old woman drowned while swimming about two meters from the shore. She was pronounced dead at the hospital after being rescued.
