A 71-year-old Chinese tourist, Guuxia Ling, died on Sunday, September 26, 2010, while snorkeling off the Quicksilver Pontoon off Toya Pakeh Beach at Nusa Penida island near Bali.
The dead woman was a physician who came to the popular beach location in a group of 100 tourist on a day cruise program.
The woman reportedly left the rest of the group shortly after her arrival at the island to snorkel the local reef. When she did not rejoin the group, a search was mounted that soon discovered the woman's body floating in the ocean.
Local police are treating the death of the woman as due to natural causes and advancing age.
The body of the Chinese tourist was brought to the Sanglah General Hospital for forensic examination.
