Udupi, May 20: In yet another tragedy at Malpe beach here, a young woman met watery grave on Monday May 20 while playing in the water.

The deceased has been identified as Vijayalaxmi (25), a resident of Kakkunje, Ambagilu here.

She had come to the beach along with her family. She and her brother Srinivas played in the water and before they could realize, went too far out. A huge wave engulfed Vijayalaxmi and she got pulled away into the sea.
Efforts by Srinivas and others to rescue her went in vain.

Vijaylaxmi, who hailed from Bangalore, married Prabhakar Shetty a year ago.

The locals rushed to the spot and helped in retrieving the body and shifting it to hospital.

This is the second tragedy in just about 24 hours reported at Malpe beach. On Sunday May 19, a boat with 16 persons capsized and a baby went missing. Gross negligence and violation of rules by the boat owner had led to the incident, it is said.

Angered by Vijayalaxmi’s death, the locals said that though a board cautioning tourists has been put up at the beach by the beach development authority, there are no lifeguards, police or expert swimmers for emergencies. "Even if police are not adept at swimming, they should develop a system to get contact fishermen who are expert swimmers in case of emergencies, so that lives can be saved," they said.

A case has been registered in Malpe police station.
