Woman swimmer killed in apparent shark attack off the coast of New England

A woman swimmer has actually passed away in an apparent shark attack off the coast Maine, New England.

Maine Marine Patrol stated a witness saw the woman swimming off the coast of Bailey Island when she was hurt.

2 kayakers assisted her to coast, and an ambulance supplied more support, a spokesperson for the United States Coast Guard stated.

The woman has actually not yet been called and authorities have not yet formally validated the event as a shark attack.

Human/shark interactions are extremely unusual in Maine, the just other taped unprovoked attack took place in 2010 when scuba diver Scott MacNichol needed to utilize his undersea cam to fend off a porbeagle that circled him prior to closing in.

MacNichol approximated the shark to be about 8 feet long and weighing 300 pounds.

In the United States as an entire there were 460 shark attacks in between 2010 and 2019, with simply 6 casualties, according to the International Shark attack File.

Florida has the highest number of taped attacks, although researchers have actually cautioned that warming oceans implies that sharks might move more north along the United States eastern coast and the frequency of attacks in states such as Maine might increase.
