Woman (21) killed by sharks while on family holiday

A California woman was mauled to death by three tiger sharks while she was snorkelling with her family in the Bahamas.

He told ABC 7: "Jordan was 21 and such a great daughter and person".

Jordan Lindsay was attacked Tuesday afternoon off Rose Island while snorkeling with family members, according to Royal Bahamas Police Force Deputy Commissioner Paul Rolle.

While she was in the water, a horrifying attack took place with three sharks involved.

According to data collected by the Florida Museum of Natural History's International Shark Attack File, the Bahama Islands only saw one unprovoked shark attack a year ago that was not fatal. "The Bahamas is not a shark attack hot-spot, nor are shark attacks on the rise - this appears to be an unfortunate and rare event".

On the page, the family says: "Jordan Lindsey was a beloved daughter, sister, girlfriend, and friend".

A Bahamas government ministry issued a statement of condolence. The shark is supposedly in the left part of the photo.

Her father told NBC News: "Her name was Jordan Lindsey...we already miss her so much..."

Jordan Lindsey, 21, of Torrance, was swimming close to Rose Island (pictured) when multiple sharks swam into the area, police said.

The Bahama Ministry of Tourism says she was pronounced dead at a hospital in New Providence.

The family's vacation was due to end on Friday.

Her family have set-up a GoFundMe page to cover costs of her funeral and to pay to bring her body back to California. The family is hoping to learn more information later today, but they're now unsure where they'll be staying in the Bahamas.

"I am saddened to share that Jordan Lindsey, a communication studies major, died on June 26, 2019".

The 21-year-old had visited the island on a tour boat with her family to see the Bahamas' famous wild pigs and to snorkel in the clear waters.

The attack happened around 2 p.m. during a snorkeling expedition near Rose Island, ABC 7 reported.
