Woman, 50, dies after being pulled from water in Warwick

West Bay

WARWICK, R.I. (WPRI) — A Providence woman died Wednesday after she was pulled from the water at the Warwick coast.

The woman was identified Thursday as 50-year-old Bauk Keo.

Warwick police say they, along with the fire department, were called to the beach area at the end of Nausauket Road at about 4 p.m. for a medical emergency.

First responders pulled the woman from the shallow water and performed life-saving measures before taking her to Kent Hospital, where she was pronounced dead a short time later, according to police.

The cause and manner of her death are pending the results of an autopsy being performed by the state medical examiner’s office. Police say it does not appear to be suspicious in nature.

Earlier this week, a Providence man died while swimming at Oakland Beach in Warwick, and the previous week, the bodies of a Providence girl and a Central Falls man who tried to save her were recovered from the waters off Conimicut Point.
