An American woman, Jordan Lindsay, 21, of Torrance, California, was attacked by three sharks Wednesday near Rose Island in the Bahamas.
She was bitten on her arms, legs and buttocks and her right arm was bitten off. She had been on a snorkeling expedition with her family who tried to help her without result. "My wife, Kami, and Jordan went snorkeling on another part of island. My wife was near Jordan, a few feet away, when the shark attacked,” Michael Lindsey, Jordan's father, said. She was pulled from the water and taken to Doctor's Hospital in Nassau. She was pronounced dead. She was the only victim in the attack.
"I am saddened to share that Jordan Lindsey, a communication studies major, died on June 26, 2019. She was 21 years old," the university said in a letter to students. Jordan was a devoted animal lover and climate change advocate. "She participated in LMU's Entrepreneurship Society, the Tau Sigma National Honor Society, and worked as a communications assistant for the LMU Frank R. Seaver College of Science and Engineering. Jordan was also a student researcher with CUREs, LMU's Center for Urban Resilience." An investigation is ongoing.
