While fatal shark attacks are not common in The Bahamas, at least two others have been reported recently.
On Nov. 21, a 47-year-old German woman went missing during a diving excursion in waters off West End, Grand Bahama, after encountering a shark, police said.
In September 2022, a 58-year-old American woman was killed in a shark attack while snorkeling with her family in waters of New Providence.
