FIFA AR drowned in the pool

Katherine Jimenez, 26, FIFA assistant referee from Costa Rica, drowned in the morning of Monday, 18 April 2016, in the pool of a hotel located on the Tambor beach, in Cobano, Puntarenas, Costa Rica. According to media reports, the judicial investigation indicated that the fact occurred at about 9:00, when Jimenez entered the pool after breakfast. Apparently, she suffered indigestion; however, the autopsy will determine the exact cause.
The UNCAF Executive Committee and the Referees Committee deeply regret the death of the FIFA assistant referee Katherine Daniela Jimenez from Costa Rica. She participated in the UNCAF project for women referee development and became an international assistant referee in 2014. Jimenez was appointed by FIFA and CONCACAF to several international tournaments, including the Algarve Cup 2016, Pan American Games 2015 and CONCACAF Women's U-20 Championship 2015.
