A woman, who is believed to be a member of the Perak royal family,  drowned while on a diving trip off Pulau Perhentian in Besut.

It is learnt that the 61-year-old woman was confirmed dead by staff at the Pulau Perhentian Health Clinic after being brought there in an unconscious state.

The incident occurred about 4.15pm on Saturday. The victim was diving at Pasir Hantu bay and with her dive mates at a depth of 19 metres.

At 15m, she gave the “OK” signal and continued with the dive but suddenly became weak, the source said, adding that her dive mates went to her aid to help her breathe but were unsuccessful.

According to The Star, Besut police chief Supt Mohd Zamri Mohd Rowi, when contacted by Bernama, confirmed receiving a report but declined to comment further.
