Woman Dies After Being Pulled from Water at Nantasket Beach in Hull Over Weekend
HULL — Chief John Dunn reports that a woman died after being pulled from the water at Nantasket Beach in Hull over the weekend.
Amy White, age 69, of Hull died on Sunday, July 7, after she suffered what police believe was a medical incident while swimming in the water.
At approximately 2 p.m. Sunday, Hull Police responded to the area of Beach Avenue and Coburn Street for a report of an unresponsive woman who was pulled out of the water onto the beach.
Upon arrival, officers located the woman, later identified as White, and members of the Hull Fire Department who were performing CPR on her.
White was transported by ambulance to South Shore Hospital in Weymouth. She was pronounced dead at 3:09 p.m.
Witnesses told police that a group of people noticed that White had been floating in the water on her back for several minutes and when they approached her to see if she was alright, she was unresponsive and 911 was called.
While the incident remains under investigation, the initial investigation indicates that the woman suffered a medical incident, leading to her death, and there is no foul play suspected.
An autopsy by the State Medical Examiner’s Office will determine the cause of death.
No further information will be released at this time.
