South California woman killed by THREE sharks as family watched on in horror
21-year-old Jordan Lindsay's parents and other family members saw the sharks and yelled a warning but she didn't hear them in time
A shark attack has killed a Southern California woman vacationing in the Bahamas. Royal Bahamas Police Force Deputy Commissioner Paul Rolle says 21-year-old Jordan Lindsay of Torrance was attacked by three sharks on Wednesday, June 26, near Rose Island while snorkeling with her family.
KABC-TV says Lindsay's parents and other family members saw the sharks and yelled a warning but she didn't hear them in time. Officials say her arms, legs and buttocks were bitten and her right arm was severed.
She was brought to a local hospital and pronounced dead there. She is expected to undergo an autopsy in Nassau. "Jordan was 21 and such a great daughter and person. We already miss her terribly," Jordan's father, Michael Lindsey, said in a statement to ABC News.
Her younger sister, Madison Lindsey, has started a GoFundMe page to help the family with funeral costs and transporting her body back to California.
"Jordan Lindsey was a beloved daughter, sister, girlfriend, and friend," the GoFundMe page says. "On June 26, 2019 Jordan was tragically killed from a shark attack in the Bahamas." It added, "Jordan had the most beautiful, gentle soul and she will be missed deeply."
Officials with the Bahamas government said: "The Ministry of Tourism, on behalf of the Government and the people of The Bahamas expresses its condolences and deepest sympathies to the family and loved ones of the victim of Wednesday's shark attack off Rose Island, near New Providence."
