Death of woman buried on Maryland beach ruled an accident

Police say the body of a 30-year-old woman has been found on a Maryland beach.

Investigators are still trying to determine whether she fell in or intentionally jumped into the hole Monday morning before she was covered with sand, Lindsay Richard with Ocean City police said.

O'Connor had been vacationing with her family but was separated from them.

A beachgoer found her body, with only a hand showing above the sand.

Maryland's Office of the Chief Medical Examiner says O'Connor died by asphyxia due to suffocation.

If Trump doesn't act, it will be another sign to the North Koreans that they can do as they please with no consequences. USA experts who study the issue say there have been repeated signals in recent weeks that they are.

The investigation is ongoing.

"People just don't realize that in the case of a cave-in it happens suddenly, and anyone around you will have a terribly hard time digging you out", he said.

A medical examiner confirmed that the death was an accident and a rare one: ABC News reports that there has only been 31 incidents of people dying in recreational sand holes over a 10-year period worldwide. A few users speculated her death could have been a homicide.

O'Connor's family has been notified, Richard said.

"In the early hours of July 31st, heaven gained another angel, Ashley O'Connor". Janet is, of course, devastated as she's lost her best friend, wife, and main source of income. Anyone with information is asked to call policed at 410-723-6604.
