Jaggayyapeta: In an unfortunate incident, a young MBBS doctor died after being swept away into the sea by water waves while she was clicking a selfie at a beach in Goa.
According to a recent media report about the incident, the deceased doctor, identified as one Dr Krishna, hailed from Jaggayyapeta in Krishna district from Andhra Pradesh. News Minute reports that she was an MBBS doctor and worked at a Primary Health Centre in Jaggayyapet.
In 2018, she had moved to Goa where she was working as a medical officer in a primary healthcare unit after joining a government hospital in the city.
She had been engaged at the 108 emergency response services, reports the News Minute.
The incident happened earlier this week when the doctor along with her few friends, had gone for a hangout at the Colomb-Patnem beach in Goa. They were standing on a rock in an isolated part of the beach that was away from the vigilance of the lifeguards. They were clicking selfie on the spot when sudden sea currents drove two of them to the sea.
Some local residents who were fishing nearby came and tried to help them out. Dr Krishna was then pulled out of the water and immediately shifted to Canacona community health centre, where she was declared dead, reports the TOI.
The local police, then, registered the case of unnatural death under Section 174 of the Criminal Procedure Code.
