Jordan Lindsey of Torrance, California killed during a shark attack while snorkeling in the Bahamas on holiday getaway with her family.
Jordan Lindsey of Torrance, Los Angeles County had her right arm severed in the attack, according to KABC citing officials. She was also bitten on her legs and buttocks in the attack.
Her family reportedly saw the sharks while she was snorkeling and shouted to her but Lindsay didn’t hear them before the attack on Rose Island, northeast of Nassau.
Bahamas Tourism Ministry issues precautionary advisory to travelers:
A GoFundme page seeking to raise funds to bring Jordan’s body back to California as of Thursday morning had raised just over $6K. In the post, Jordan’s family described her as a beloved daughter and sister who had the most beautiful and gentle soul.
A statement issued early Thursday morning by Timothy Law Synder, the President of Loyola Marymount University, said Lindsey was a communication studies major at the university. Synder said Lindsey was a ‘devoted animal lover and climate change advocate.’
The Bahamas Ministry of Tourism and Aviation expressed condolences and “deepest sympathies” to the family in a statement, and said officials were still investigating the incident. In the meantime, it said another government agency had issued “precautionary advisories to the public” following the shark attack.

From Jordan Lindsey’s father:
“…We already miss her so much. She was so caring she loved all animals it’s ironic she would die getting attacked by a shark.”
