The San Luis Obispo County Sheriff's Office has reported that a woman from Georgia who was accompanying her family to a beach in California passed very early on Saturday morning as a result of the powerful waves that struck them.

According to the authorities, Brindha Shunmuganathan, who is 39 years old, and her two children were at Pismo Beach when they were knocked down by a strong wave at approximately nine in the morning.

Shunmuganathan and her family reportedly slept in a motel in the vicinity while they were on holiday, as reported by the police. 

While they were snapping pictures at the beach, a large wave surged up and knocked them down. They had made the decision to go to the beach.

It was stated by Fox26 News that relatives of the family were able to rescue the two children; however, the mother was unable to escape the rock bed and was being repeatedly hit by waves that were approaching.

Police say that witnesses who witnessed the event took Shunmuganathan out of the water and attempted to save her life by performing cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR). 

The Pismo Beach Police Department reported to USA TODAY that officers arrived at the site at approximately 9:11 a.m. on Saturday, when they attempted to save Shunmuganathan but were unsuccessful.

As a result of multiple attempts, she was pronounced dead at the site by medical personnel who arrived a few moments later, according to the police. As stated by the San Luis Obispo County Sheriff's Office, detectives are still awaiting the results of an autopsy in order to identify the reason for Shunmuganathan's passing.
