California woman, 21, dies after getting attacked by three sharks while snorkeling in the Bahamas

An American woman vacationing in the Bahamas with her family was killed Wednesday after being viciously attacked by three sharks while snorkeling.

Jordan Lindsey, 21, and her family were snorkeling near Rose Island, off the coast of Nassau at around 2:00 p.m. when she was attacked by at least three sharks, the Royal Bahamas Police Force said.

Her family reportedly saw the sharks while she was in the water and shouted to her but Lindsay didn’t hear them.

Lindsey’s father, Michael, told KNBC that his wife Kami was also in the water at the time of the attack. He said she tried to pull their daughter to shore but Lindsey had already lost too much blood at that point.

She was taken to hospital but pronounced dead on June 26th. In a tribute, her family said:

“Jordan had the most beautiful, gentle soul and she will be missed deeply. She was a beloved daughter, sister, girlfriend, and friend”.


Jordan was bitten by the sharks on her arms, legs, and bottom and lost her right arm in the attack. Her family have set-up a GoFundMe page to cover costs of her funeral and to pay to bring her body back to California.


She was studying communications at Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles.
