A German tourist was killed by a shark attack in Egypt waters!

Swimming in the Red Sea is now a serious trouble since a German women was brutally killed by a shark. The unhappy incident tuck place in waters off Sharm el-Sheikh, Egypt, the same place where other three people were injured last week by another shark.

Egypt’s tourism ministry has decided to close the Sharm el-Sheikh beach until the shark responsible for Sunday’s attack is found, according to the nation’s Interior Ministry.

The female, an elderly German, had her arm torn off by the sea beast. She had been swimming near Sharm el-Sheikh, a renowned diving and vacation resort.
The 70-year-old woman, was snorkeling near a reef when she was attacked. She called for help, and a lifeguard brought her to shore, but she had lost too much blood and resuscitation efforts failed, Van Lysebettens said. The woman’s arm and leg were severed injured, he said.
After all those incidents, authorities managed to capture a shark but there is a incertitude¬† that the shark in the photo is the correct animal — or species.
“This incident has clearly shocked our community, and the CDWS is continuing its investigation into why this may have happened,” Hesham Gabr, head of the Chamber of Diving and Watersports said.
