Lefkada beach

A 43-year-old Chinese woman tragically drowned on Monday after her paraglider fell into the sea near the island of Lefkada.

The woman, who was vacationing on the Ionian island with a group, was paragliding alone on the island's western side when the accident occurred.

Witnesses at Agios Nikitas beach saw the paraglider plunge into the water. A nearby vessel and a swimmer quickly responded, but they found her submerged and tangled in the paraglider ropes. After freeing her and bringing her to the surface, they attempted cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) on the beach.

Emergency services were called, and the woman was transported to the Hospital of Lefkada by ambulance (EKAV), but doctors were unable to revive her.
