The body of a woman which was found around 5 pm on Sunday – at São Filipe beach, in front of the cable car, was a woman in her 70s who was in a bathing suit.
Everything indicates that it was a sudden illness that caused the death of the old woman.
In the place were Madeiran Volunteer Firefighters and PSP.
I was at this spot just half hour before and there were a number of people swimming at this time. These photos taken by São Tiago Fort.
