Egyptian Ministry of Environment: Another woman died because of shark attack

(MENAFN) The Egyptian Ministry of Environment stated on Sunday that a second woman had perished in a shark attack off the Red Sea coast close to Hurghada.

The declaration read, “immediately upon receiving information on the shark attack on two women swimming near the resort of Sahl Hasheesh in Hurghada, Environment Minister Yasmine Fouad gave the directive to establish a working group of specialists of the Red Sea nature reserves.”

After hearing that a 68-year-old Austrian woman had perished in a shark attack, news of a second death broke. On the other hand, the man, who had seemingly lost a leg and an arm, died shortly after being taken to the exclusive Nile Hospital in Hurghada due to nervous shock.

The ministry expressed its sympathies to the departed families, “experts are reviewing the circumstances of the incident to accurately determine why the shark behaved the way it did and killed two persons.”
