An Australian woman died after swimming at red-flagged Kamala Beach on Sunday afternoon.

Kamala Beach lifeguards pulled 65-year-old Barbara Fistrovic from the sea after she went swimming on a section of the beach that had been red-flagged zone.

She was swept away by a big wave and disappeared before her husband, 75-year-old Ivan Fistrovic, rushed to call for help.

The lifeguards provided CPR and first aid, but Fistrovic died during the ambulance trip to Patong Hospital.
