A woman died while swimming in the Russian River near Guerneville on Wednesday afternoon, after she was rescued and attempts to resuscitate her failed.

Bystanders pulled the woman out of the water near Dubrava Beach about 2:30 and administered CPR, Russian River Fire District Capt. Ryan Lantz said.

“Unfortunately she did not survive the medical event that happened in the water,” Lantz said.

The Sonoma County Sheriff’s Office is investigating what caused her death and withheld releasing her name pending notification of family members.

This is the third death along the Russian River this summer.
