Trivia:

On December 18, 2000, she and her children were scuba diving off the coast of Cozumel, Mexico. They had just surfaced when she saw a speedboat heading directly for them (the area was reserved for divers and the boat should not have been there). She pushed her children out of the way, but she was struck by the boat and died instantly. See more »
