CANCUN, Q. Roo — A 26-year-old Canadian woman was reported missing and presumed drowned Wednesday Nov. 19 after a lifeguard was unable to rescue her from a current that carried her to sea.

The tourist, identified as Anna Elizabeth Hudson, 26, was swimming Wednesday evening with a companion near the beach opposite the Hotel Iberostar, in Cancun’s hotel zone. The current dragged Hudson and the other young woman out to sea.



Reports indicated the second tourist, Dayanna Sirdeyd, 22, was rescued by a hotel lifeguard, who could not reach Hudson.

Elements of the Fire Department conducted a search operation along the beach and offshore by boat, without locating Hudson.
