The Associated Press:

GRAYLAND, Wash. — Officials are investigating the circumstances surrounding the discovery of a Renton woman’s body on an ocean beach — as her 8-year-old daughter was in a car swamped by the incoming tide.

Pacific County Coroner David Burke said indications are the woman’s death was an accidental drowning.  Her daughter was not hurt.

KING5 was told by the Pacific County Sheriff’s Office that the 36-year-old woman parked the car on the beach in Grayland on Sunday and told the girl to stay inside. The woman said she was going fishing.

Someone walking on the beach found the woman’s body Sunday afternoon, and the child was found in the vehicle, which had become surrounded by water as the tide came in.
Sheriff Scott Johnson said there were no obvious signs of trauma or foul play.
