Young woman dies just a day before her 28th birthday as beach trip turns into tragedy – leaving her family shattered in ‘absolute shock’

The mother of a young woman has said she was ‘totally shocked’ after her daughter died in waters off a Queensland beach, just a day before her 28th birthday.

Lucinda McGrath was enjoying a day at Bulcock Beach in Caloundra, north of Brisbane, to celebrate her birthday before being spotted unresponsive in the water.

She was pulled from the waves, but could not be revived.

Lucinda’s mother, Lynelle McGrath, said her free-spirited daughter “loves the beach” and regularly travels from her home north of Brisbane to camp around the Sunshine Coast, Mail Mail reports.

‘Rest in peace Lucy. Thanks for providing me with your free spirit vibes all through high school,’ one mourner posted on social media.
