KEY WEST — Authorities say a woman is dead after collapsing during a snorkeling trip in the Florida Keys.

A Monroe County Sheriff’s Office news release says 70-year-old Linda Gay Adams was pronounced dead at a hospital Saturday.

Officials say the Lake Alfred woman was snorkeling with family members at the Eastern Dry Rocks south of Key West when she returned to the boat and said she wasn’t feeling well. She collapsed and CPR was started.

A U.S. Coast Guard crew responded and took her to shore, where paramedics were waiting.

Investigators say there were no signs of foul play.
