Tiger Shark Attack Off Costa Rica Kills American Tourist

Tiger Shark Attack Off Costa Rica Kills American Tourist

A 49-year-old Wall Street executive was killed by a tiger shark last week while diving with a group off the coast of Costa Rica, according to PEOPLE.

An American tourist recently died off the coast of Costa Rica in a tragic shark attack-a deadly incident that is extremely rare.

She had been scuba diving with 17 others off Cocos Island National Park, a World Heritage site known for its abundant species of shark, according to the Costa Rica Ministry of Environment and Energy.

Bhandari was a senior director at WL Ross & Co. and Francescon in Manhattan.

The security forces have cordoned off the area and launched a hunt for the militants, the police official added. The search operation turned into an encounter with militants, the official said.

Bhandari's friends have been mourning on social media, calling her an adventurer and one of a kind.

"It was bad. We head this news and realized that, 'uh oh.' They had gone on vacation and this scuba diving thing and tiger shark attacked her".

The guide tried to assist, and also got bitten, according to the report.

The $20 billion Barakah nuclear power plant, being built with help from South Korea, is near Abu Dhabi's border with Saudi Arabia. The claim comes as the United Arab Emirates, which is part of the Saudi-led coalition, celebrates its National Day.


Both her legs were severely injured in the tiger shark attack, the ministry said, according to the New York Daily News. He is in a serious but stable condition.

Bhandari's friends remember her as an enthusiastic person who loved to take up new challenges.

But unlike their fellow predators, tiger sharks are unlikely to swim away after biting a human. She was working as sales and marketing executive in NY. Her brother, who is a famous orthopedician told Bangalore Mirror that the family was grieving and refused to say anything more. The Costan Rican Star reported in 2012 that researchers had found five Tiger Sharks in the waters around the island.
