Shark Attack in Egypt: Russian Tourist Killed and Devoured by Tiger Shark on Beach

Russian tourist killed in Egypt by tiger shark

A Russian tourist was mauled to death by a tiger shark while swimming off the coast of Egypt’s Red Sea on Thursday. The attack was caught on camera by other tourists at the beach.

According to witnesses, the victim was a 37-year-old man from Russia. He was swimming in the water when the shark suddenly attacked him, dragging him underwater.

Tourists who witnessed the attack alerted lifeguards, who rushed to the scene. They were able to retrieve the victim’s body from the water, but he had already died from his injuries.

The beach was evacuated and closed following the incident. Officials say they are investigating the attack and have warned swimmers to be cautious when entering the water.

Tiger sharks, known for their aggressive behavior, are one of the most dangerous shark species and are responsible for numerous shark attacks around the world.

This tragedy is the latest in a series of shark attacks on tourists in the region. Just last week, a 12-year-old boy was attacked and killed by a shark off the coast of Egypt.
