LONGBOAT KEY, Fla. -- Police say a tourist from Georgia has drowned off the coast of southwest Florida.

Jacqueline Landaverde of Snellville was visiting Longboat Key with her husband, three children and a church group.

Police say a bystander pulled Landaverde to shore Wednesday after hearing her 12-year-old daughter cry out for help.

The girl told police that Landaverde was not a good swimmer and appeared to struggle as the current took her too far from shore.

Landaverde later died at a Sarasota hospital.
