Shark attack in Bahamas kills Southern California woman
TORRANCE, Calif. (AP) — A shark attack has killed a Southern California woman vacationing in the Bahamas.
It happened Wednesday afternoon near Rose Island.
Paul Rolle, deputy commissioner for the Royal Bahamas Police Force, says 21-year-old Jordan Lindsay of Torrance was attacked by three sharks on Wednesday while snorkeling with her family.
KABC-TV says Lindsay’s parents and other family members saw the sharks and yelled a warning but she didn’t hear them in time. Officials say her arms, legs and buttocks were bitten and her right arm was severed.
She was pronounced dead at a hospital.
The Bahamas Ministry of Tourism and Aviation issued a statement expressing its condolences and “deepest sympathies” to the family.
