Two women who drowned whilst on holiday in Tenerife have been named.

The two women who drowned whilst on holiday in Tenerife have been named.

Uma Ramalingam, a 42-year-old consultant obstetrician at Royal Oldham Hospital in Manchester and her friend Narathi Ruvikumar, 39, were holidaying on the Spanish island when they were swept away by currents off the popular Spanish holiday isle.

According to reports, the women had been trying to save their children - aged 10 and 14 - when they drowned on Sunday evening.

Chennai-born Ms Ramalingam, Ruvikumar and a third woman had been holidaying with the children at an apartment on the island.

All three are thought to have gone into the water to save the two children but then got into difficulty themselves.

The incident has left colleagues of Ms Ramalingham at Royal Oldham in shock.

Olubusola Amu, consultant and clinical director of Women and Children Services at The Pennine Acute Hospitals NHS Trust, told the Manchester Evening News: “We are greatly saddened to hear the death of Uma who had been working for the Trust for about six years.

"She was a fantastic doctor who brought a lot of hope to the high risk women attending the Women and Children’s Unit at The Royal Oldham Hospital.

“This is a terrible shock to everyone who knew Uma. Our thoughts are with her family at this sad time. She will be sorely missed.”
