A Royal Caribbean passenger was attacked by what is believed to be a bull shark while snorkeling in the Bahamas on Tuesday.
According to CBS, the woman, who was a passenger on the Royal Caribbean cruise ship Harmony of the Seas, was attacked by the shark while on an “independent shore excursion” at a popular snorkeling spot near Green Cay in the northern Bahamas. She was taken to hospital, where she sadly succumbed to her injuries.
“Royal Caribbean is providing support and assistance to the guest’s loved ones during this difficult time,” the cruise line said in a statement reported by CBS.
The Harmony of the Seas is currently on a seven-night cruise that sailed from Florida’s Port Canaveral on September 4.
