Geriatric nurse drowns at Quinam Beach

While the search continues for Jada Nathalia Wilson, who disappeared in the waters of Tyrico Bay on Tuesday, yet another woman has lost her life at sea.

Dead is mother of seven, Sandy Mohammed, who is suspected to have drowned at Quinam beach on Wednesday night.

Mohammed, a 37-year-old geriatric nurse, of Goodwill Road, Ocean Park, Chaguanas, was at the Siparia beach with her boyfriend Kyron Hospedales, 36, Foster Road, Sangre Grande.

Hospedales told police they were bathing in about chest high-water when he left her and went swimming.

However, when he swam back, she was not to be found.

Hospedales said he called out to her and when there was no response, he came out of the water and got a flashlight, then returned into the water to search for her.

He told police when he found her, she was floating on the surface of the water.

Hospedales said he made attempts to resuscitate her, but to no avail.

He eventually contacted a nearby security office and the Siparia Police officers were alerted.

The body was examined by a district medical officer and officers were told that there no visible marks of violence.

A post-mortem is set to be conducted at the Forensic Science Centre, St James.
