The events occurred shortly after midday today when the woman, who was with eleven other tourists of different nationalities, was on an organised excursion, felt unwell and collapsed in the water.
The woman was wearing a life jacket and was left floating face down until she was discovered by her companions who raised the alarm. Maritime Rescue, the Guardia Civil and Manacor Local Police were mobilised and the victim was evacuated to Porto Cristo, where her death was confirmed.
The woman, who was wearing a wetsuit, has been identified and appears to have arrived in Mallorca a few days ago. At the time of the accident she was swimming in the sea, very close to the entrance of the cave.

Very sad, but not a life jacket, those turn you face up if unconscious. It's a personal flotation device. If engaging in adventure sports you really need to implement a vigorous buddy system and be ever vigilant. I hope the organizer is held to task over this.
One thing is for sure James, if the Putin puppet Le Pen had got voted in it would have been a total disaster for France.
@James, How does your opinion of Macron have anything to do with anything? Especially this. Get a life.
Another 4 years of that little cretin Macron. Will make you not want to go back to France
