Sep 15, 2015 by To the Triton

A Serbian journalist died during a sea trial on Sept. 12, according to news reports. The woman, who was 30, appears to have jumped out of the 33-foot (10m) rigid inflatable after it hit a wave and its two other passengers were thrown overboard. It is thought that she panicked and jumped, and was caught in the propeller.
The three were test driving the boat during the Cannes Yachting Festival. The two who were thrown overboard were rescued by firefighters.
