A BELOVED mum-of-two who attempted to save her young daughters while swimming on holiday drowned accidentally, a coroner has ruled.
Lina Dilipkumar, 38, had asked her husband to drop off their beach bag in the hotel room whilst she swam with their daughters on the bustling Mexico beach.

The distraught father discovered holiday-goers at the Il Playa del Carmen beach, near Cancun, were crowded around Vishal’s struggling family.
After realising his wife had not returned to shore from their swim, Vishal sent a lifeguard on a jet ski to find the lost mum.
Tragically, the lifeguard brought back Lina’s lifeless body.

A coroner ruled that the mum died on July 24 last year by “suffocation due to submersion” in a terrible holiday accident.
Vishal’s statement was read by North London Coroner’s Court assistant Dr Peter Straker to the grieving family via video link.
The father said: “On July 24, 2022, the approximate time being between 10.30am and 11am, we were walking towards the beach in order to take some photographs.
“I went into the sea to swim with my daughters, and I left my wife with my camera.”

Vishal said his wife hoped to swim, so she asked him to take her beach bag up to the hotel room.
As he returned to the beach, he saw the crowds surrounding the waves, and found his eldest daughter.
He said: “People had managed to hold onto my oldest daughter.
“I approached the lifeguard and ordered him to help in search of my wife on his jet ski because nobody could find her.
“When he got back he then tried to get the water from her body.”
Paramedics tried in vain to help the drowning mother before she was rushed to a nearby clinic where doctors began to revive Lina.
Heartbreakingly, Vishal said: “Half an hour later the doctor came out and informed me that my wife had not managed to survive.”
The husband thanked his large family for their constant care and support, and the Mexican and British governments.
Lina was the only sister in a family of five brothers, leaving a gaping hole for the grieving family.
The coroner ruled: “Lina Dilipkamura died as the result of suffocation caused by submersion on 24 July off the coast of Mexico.

“Lina died as a result of an accident.”
He offered his condolences and added: “I hope Lina’s daughters are well despite losing their mother.”
