Women tourist attack by shark in #hurghada #egypt
A TOURIST has died after she had her arm and leg ripped off by a shark in a horror attack in a tourist resort in Sharm El Sheikh.
The 68-year-old woman was seen desperately swimming back to shore after the attack in front of terrified onlookers.
The woman later died in an ambulance from “shock”.
Horrifying video filmed by Russian tourists, that Sun Online has chosen to reveal, shows the woman’s blood in the water as she struggled to make her way back to a pier.
A large crowd watched the drama but no one was seen entering the water to help the woman.
Other reports say tourists rushed out of the water when the woman was attacked and tried to “distract the shark from the victim”.
The incident was at Sahl Hasheesh, a popular bay on the Red Sea coast of Egypt, close to Sharm El Sheikh.
The victim who was Austrian was evidently married to an Egyptian man and lived with him in the country.
Russian witnesses saw that she had lost an arm but did not mention a severed leg.
One said: “People are rushing out of the sea. There’s no ambulance, there’s no one helping her.
