A tourist was brutally attacked by a tiger shark while enjoying a day at the beach at a luxury resort and died on the spot. The dramatic situation occurred in the waters of the Red Sea, of the Dream Beach Sheraton resort, when the tourist was swimming away from the shore and was rammed several times by the shark.
Other tourists on the sand of Hurghada Beach in Egypt began screaming desperately, but could do nothing. According to the international press, the victim was a tourist of Russian origin.
The grisly images were also recorded by some nearby boats that could not do anything for the life of the young man. In the video you can see the man swimming when he is suddenly surprised by the animal that begins to attack him.
The brutal attack occurred in Egypt's Red Sea.
Sources quoted by the Egyptian newspaper Almasy Alyoum point out that the tourist was transferred to the morgue of the General Hospital of Hurghada and it was confirmed that there were no other injuries beyond those produced by the shark. According to these sources, the attack occurred because traders throw animal remains into the sea, so sharks come to the area to feed.
Following the incident, the local ministry decreed a two-day ban on bathing, diving and other water sports between Gouna and Soma Bay, which is in line with international protocols and will be effective from this Friday.
In addition, Environment Minister Yasmine Fouad urged residents and tourists to comply with instructions to "ensure their own safety."
