Bahamas shark attack woman dies after being bitten by a bull shark

In the Bahamas, a 58-year-old Pennsylvania woman died after being bitten by a bull shark.

The incident occurred around 2 p.m. on the 6th of Sep as the woman and her family snorkeled off Rose Island.

Authorities did not say where the victim lived in Pennsylvania.

Five to seven other people were diving when the attack happened, but there were no other injuries.

According to Royal Caribbean, the woman was a guest on the Harmony of the Seas sailing; however, the family was on an independent shore excursion when the incident occurred.

The cruise line released this statement to ABC News:

“While on a self-guided shore excursion in Nassau, Bahamas, a guest aboard Harmony of the Seas was injured by a shark. Upon arrival at a local hospital for treatment, the guest died from his injuries. “Royal Caribbean is providing support and assistance to the guest’s loved ones during this difficult time.”

In June 2019, an American tourist snorkeling off Rose Island was killed in a shark attack. The victim, 21-year-old Loyola-Marymount University student Jordan Lindsay, died after being attacked by a school of sharks.
