21-Year-Old Woman Killed by Swarm of Sharks in Bahamas

Playing 21-Year-Old Killed by Sharks on Bahamas Vacation With Family

A young American on vacation with her family was killed in a shark attack Wednesday. 

Jordan Lindsey, 21, was snorkeling in the Bahamas when cops say her parents saw a swarm of three sharks coming at her. They quickly engulfed her, fatally mauling her.

"We already miss her so much," her father said in a statement. "She was so caring. She loved all animals. It's ironic she would die getting attacked by a shark."

The nightmare took place off Rose Island.

Lindsey’s death is the latest horror in what's turning into the summer of the shark.

Curator and co-founder of the Long Island Aquarium Joe Yaiullo spoke to Inside Edition about how to stay safe in the water during shark season.  

"Swimming in an area where there may be sharks, you just kind of want to use common sense. You want to avoid dawn and dusk times. Not wearing jewelry is a good idea because that does flash and will catch their attention," he said.
