    Default Woman killed by three sharks while snorkelling in Bahamas


    A woman has been killed in a shark attack while holidaying in the Bahamas.

    Three of the animals savaged Jordan Lindsay, from Torrance in California, as she snorkelled with her family.
    The 21-year-old student’s right arm was torn off, while she also suffered bites across her legs, left arm and buttocks, Paul Roll, deputy commissioner of the Royal Bahamas Police Force, said.

    Ms Lindsay’s parents and other family members had seen the sharks and shouted a warning, but she did not hear them, he added.

    Her father Michael Lindsey said in a statement: “We already miss her so much.
    “She was so caring. She loved all animals. It’s ironic she would die getting attacked by a shark.”

    Her younger sister, Madison, has started a GoFundMe page to help with the costs of taking Jordan’s body back home to the US.
    On it, she wrote: “Jordan had the most beautiful, gentle soul and she will be missed deeply.”
    The Bahamas Ministry of Tourism and Aviation issued a statement expressing its condolences and “deepest sympathies” to the family.
    A spokesperson from the US State Department said: “We can confirm a US citizen in the Bahamas succumbed to her injuries following a shark attack on 26 June.”



    Although several tour boat workers were reported to have jumped into the water to try and save her following the incident on Wednesday, she was pronounced dead at Doctor’s Hospital in the island’s capital of Nassau shortly afterward.

    Sad, really. Sometimes, though, I think that the animals are turning on us. But this poor girl...

    I think it's more that we are far from the top of the food chain in the ocean. We're so used to being an apex predator on land that we forget that there are many more apex predators in the ocean. I don't even think we'd be considered an apex predator in any ocean. And "they" always say that shark attacks are so rare, but this poor girl was attacked by three.

    I've had a few bad experiences in large bodies of water throughout my life. I no longer go into water unless I can see the bottom. And since I don't have the money for Turks and Caicos, I guess I'm sticking to pools!!

    The mom did. She was the one who pulled the daughter to shore - which seems strange to me if they were snorkeling off of a boat. The rest of the family was doing an activity on the other side of the island.
