SAD: Husband drowns while swimming as she took PICTURES

Maira Shahid was taking pictures of her husband Mohammed Majid Malik swimming when he got into difficulty in the hotel pool. She didn’t realise her husband had waded backwards too far and was out of his depth in the water.

The inquest heard she then “risked everything” by jumping into the 3.6 metre deep water to try and save her drowning husband, 28, even though she couldn’t swim.

An inquest into his death heard how two hotel guests dived in and managed to pull Mr Malik out of the water but staff were unable to resuscitate him.

At a previous hearing Mrs Shahid said: “I could see his hands going up and down and I went into the pool to try to get him up but I couldn’t.

“I was screaming for help and couldn’t get hold of his hands.”

After going out for dinner the couple sat by the pool at the Jebel Ali Beach Hotel in Dubai and Mr Malik, a mortgage advisor from Luton, Beds, went for a swim.

Mrs Shahid added: “Majid said he wanted to go for a walk, that was the first time we went there [to the pool].

“He said he wanted to swim. I asked him if he could swim as it was our first holiday together and he said he had done it before at the gym.”

The inquest on Wednesday in Ampthill, Beds, heard how Mr Malik was pronounced dead 35 minutes after being pulled out of the pool on August 15 last year.
