Two British doctors died off Tenerife beach after they were sucked into whirlpool as they tried to save their children



Dr Uma Ramalingam, 42, left, and GP Barathi Ravikumar, 40, went to grab the two youngsters after they were suddenly hit by a succession of freak waves as they paddled on rocks near their holiday villa in the Playa Paraiso, pictured right. But all four slipped on the wet rocks and slid into the water and were swept out due to the strong waves and currents. The children were rescued but both doctors drowned. An inquest in Stockport yesterday was told there had been no warning signs about paddling on the rocks at the time of the tragedy in April. Recording a verdict of accidental death, the coroner John Pollard said the incident was 'completely unexpected'.
