    Something (sun thing) is in the mortar besides the pestle. Smells fishy, ĥow did the sand get in her mouth?

  2. Investigation discontinued? How did sea sand got in her airways? Don’t tell me that she was eating sea sand..more Investigation needed.

  3. This is unbelievable, how did sand got into her mouth as to go down her throat especially for a doctor. I have never heard such a thing like this, i can understand water but not sand something is not right here believe or not. My deepest condolences to her family may her Soul Rest in Peace.

  4. Coleen Robertson says:

    maybe she had a seizure or playing with snd in her mouth, and get choke while coughing

  5. Catherine Liverpool says:

    The article didn’t say she was eating sand. I think maybe she passed out on the beach, fell face down and inhaled the sand. May her soul rest in eternal peace.

  6. It would have to be perfectly dry sand to make its way into her upper and lower airways. It is not easy to ingest or inhale wet sand. If she was also found in the sea/ocean, then it would have to be either while choking or after having been choked by sand, she made her way there. Maybe the tides came up to where the dry sand was to fetch her
