Some people won’t visit California for fear of earthquakes. Others won’t try what this unfortunate traveler did — for exactly this reason.
It was SUPPOSED to be a vacation. One of those ‘bucket-list’ type of experiences.
It turned out to be anything but.
Some people love to go snorkling and see what’s under the survace of the deep. Others — fishermen, for example — have come face-to-face with too many of the toothy monsters they’ve pulled out of the deep to even consider going down there.
Most of the time, vacationers can go down there and come back unharmed. But to say that it’s perfectly safe is to forget that under the water is just as much a wilderness as a trackless jungle. It doesn’t matter if your hotel room is a 15-minute boat-ride from your dive site, when you don those fins and mask, you’re in THEIR world, not your own.
Jordan Lindsey is the American college student who was killed by three sharks while snorkeling in the Bahamas on the afternoon of June 26. The horror unfolded while Lindsey was vacationing with her family. She was 21 years old.
The attack occurred on Rose Island, a small uninhabited island three miles east of Paradise Island.
Lindsey is the second American to have been killed in a shark attack within the last month. In May 2019, Dr. Thomas Smiley, 65, died after being attacked by a shark in Ka’anapali State Park in Hawaii.
…According to Paul Rolle, deputy commissioner for the Royal Bahamas Police Force, Lindsey was snorkeling with her family, including her parents, when the sharks attacked. Some family members tried to yell and warn her about the sharks, but she didn’t hear them, ABC 7 reported.
…Jace Holton, who had been snorkeling in the area less than an hour before the attack, told KTLA 5 that workers had jumped in to try to help her.
She was taken to Doctor’s Hospital in Nassau and was pronounced dead there, Fox 5 reported.
By the time she reached the shore, her blood loss had already been too significant for her to recover from.
Because the fatal attack happened in a foreign country, repatriating her remains will be both complicated and expensive. The family is said to be trying to raise money to assist with that. (Here)

ClashDaily.com’s, Editor-In-Chief, Doug Giles how-to book:
In ‘Raising Righteous and Rowdy Girls’, Doug Giles reinforces the notion that little women don’t need to be pampered by their fathers to turn out right. And having met his beautiful daughters, I know his philosophy works. As a strong-willed woman who thinks her daddy is the greatest guy in the world, I can tell you this is a must-read for every man who hopes to earn the same title. —-S.E.
