Tourist dies of heart attack while snorkeling

Another visitor to Belize has died, although in this case no foul play is suspected. Fifty-six year old Irene Bein, a tourist from New York, was snorkeling at Hol Chan Marine Reserve, along with her twenty two year old son, when she began experiencing breathing problems and passed out. She was taken ashore, where CPR was administered, but the efforts were in vain as the woman did not regain consciousness. Irene Bein’s body has been taken to Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital where it awaits a postmortem examination.
