He went swimming with his daughter, a shark ripped off his leg: 26-year-old young man died

A 26-year-old woman died after being bitten on the leg by a shark while swimming with her five-year-old daughter in the waters off the beach resort of Melaque in the western Mexican state of Jalisco. The mother and daughter were swimming towards a floating play platform about 25 meters from shore when the attack occurred.


No one had seen the shark approach and the woman was bitten on the leg: an amputation that proved fatal for the 26-year-old. Despite the intervention of rescue teams, the woman lost her life after losing a large amount of blood.

Before she died, the woman managed to save her 5-year-old daughter, who remained unharmed. After the accident, local authorities closed the swimming area.

According to local officials, it was a bull shark: It was the species’ breeding season and the specimen must have come close to the beach because the shadow of the inflatable created the appearance of a dark cave, ideal for giving birth underwater.
