A BRITISH tourist drowned while on holiday in Crete marking the third tragic death at the popular resort in just a few days.
The lifeless body of the woman was found washed up on the beach of Almyrida in Chania.
La femme, believed to be from Wales, was reportedly found unconscious on Wednesday afternoon.
Her body washed up at the shore due to strong waves.
According to local reports, rescuers attempted CPR for half an hour but the woman could not be revived.

It is noteworthy that since October 1, lifeguards are no longer stationed on beaches as the contractual period has been completed.
