Date Posted: 2012-07-20

A 110 emergency call to fire rescue from a jogger said “a woman is floating on the ocean surface”, bringing paramedics and rescue personnel to the Miyagi seashore in Chatan Town Monday.

The 48-year-old woman was pulled from the water alive, but later died. Witnesses identified her as Masae Takayama. Her husband, Yoshimi Takayama, was seen together at the beach, preparing to dive. Bystanders say both husband and wife put on wetsuits and fins, and the man carried air cylinders to the water.

The observations led police to conclude the 530year-old Yoshimi Takayama was also in the water somewhere, and they began a search shortly after 2 p.m.He was found dead at the bottom of the sea near the beach. Police say they’re not sure what happened to the couple while they were diving. Staff at a nearby dive shop said waves were higher because of southwesterly winds at the end of the rainy season. He said many people had been diving and surfing.
