Woman gets Asbo banning her from sea after 50 suicide attempts that cost taxpayers £1m

‘A woman has been banned from going into the sea around the British coastline after trying to drown herself more than 50 times.

Amy Beth Dallamura’s suicide attempts over the past five years have cost emergency services up to £1million.

The 44-year-old has tried to kill herself by jumping off piers and jetties and wading into the ocean.

Police, lifeboats, coastguards and the RAF’s air and sea rescue helicopters have all been involved in rescuing her. [..]

The former golf professional was stopped by police from going into the sea on June 21.

Later that day she was winched from a cliff face after again trying to go into the sea.

On June 23, she had to be airlifted to hospital after going into the sea and being pulled out of the water. Two days later she phoned police threatening to kill herself in the sea. She was found on rocks suffering from hypothermia.’
