SYDNEY, , (APP - UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News - 16th Nov, 2016 ) - Two French tourists have died while snorkelling at a popular tourist spot on the Great Barrier Reef in Australia, authorities and reports said Wednesday.
Two of them, a man and a woman, died after being pulled from the water unconscious, while the third survived, the newspaper added. "They indicated that they had medical conditions prior to getting in the water," Col Mckenzie of Queensland state's Association of Marine Park Tourism Operators told AFP.
"Because they indicated their medical conditions, what's gone wrong I don't know. It's what I am trying to find out right now." Queensland Police said in a statement that the circumstances surrounding the deaths "are believed to be non-suspicious" and that water police were en-route.
