Elderly woman who fled Lankan economic crisis dies in Madurai Hospital

A Sri Lankan elderly woman and her husband who were found unconscious on a beach in Dhaushkodi, has died in hospital, Indian media reported.

The couple had fled Sri Lanka, unable to put up with the economic crisis.

A boatman had dropped them in neck-deep water in the dead of night. The couple, who had not eaten the previous night, had struggled a lot to reach the shore.

According to The Hindu, Parameswari (70) of Mannar, who had fled the crisis-hit island nation and clandestinely arrived in Dhaushkodi by boat on 27 June, died at the Government Rajaji Hospital on Saturday.

The Police said the woman, who was found unconscious with her husband, Periyannan (80) on the shore near the Kothandaramar Temple, was admitted to the hospital for treatment of her head injury.

Her body would be taken to Tiruchi for funeral.
