By Zoila Palma Gonzalez: On Tuesday, a 58-year-old American woman lost her life in a shark attack in The Bahamas, Reuters report.
The woman and her family were passengers on Royal Caribbean’s Harmony of the Seas. They booked an excursion since they were visiting New Providence for the day.
They went to Green Cay where a 21-year-old American woman was also killed in a shark attack in 2019.
“The family was reportedly snorkeling in waters and that area is known for visitors to snorkel. It is further reported that family members observed a bull shark attacking the female,” authorities say.
Authorities say that employees of the tour company and family members rescued the victim.
She was taken to New Providence where she was pronounced dead.
The victim sustained injuries to her upper body.
Data from the Florida Museum of Natural History’s shark attack file indicate that in 2021, there were 73 confirmed unprovoked attacks globally, of which 9 were fatal.
