Investigations are continuing into the tragic death of a young Australian woman in Greece.

Jake McNamara, the model's brother, was the first to announce her death.

Greek authorities are understood to be addressing media today about the death of an Australian model on a billionaire's superyacht last Friday.

Mr Bailleres and his family had left the Mayan Queen IV boat days before the incident, Greek news outlets reported.

Attempts "were made to revive her at the scene, but she fell into a coma and died while being airlifted from the island hospital at Argostoli to a larger hospital in Athens", reports The Daily Telegraph.

According to Australian news, McNamara's mother and sister were on their way to Greece to meet her for a holiday when they heard of her death.
