USA executive killed by tiger shark while scuba diving off Costa Rica

Costa Rican officials said a tiger shark killed an American tourist last week.

The deadly attack took place on Thursday in the waters of Cocos Island National Park.

A native of Mangaluru, 49-year-old Rohina Bhandary died after being attacked savagely by a tiger shark in Costa Rica in Central America.Rohina Bhandary is the sister of well-known doctor Dr Nithin Bhandary and grand daughter of I G Balakrishna Shetty. Another said, "RIP Rohina Bhandari you were one of a kind, You will Be truly missed my friend!"




Officials said Bhandari was dragged from the ocean after sustaining severe bites to her legs on November 30, but could not be saved.

Many expressed shock over her death. The instructor, who is in a stable condition, told Costa Rican newspaper La Nacion that he had tried to scare the shark away when he spotted it underwater. Jimenez was also bitten during the attack but survived. On her Facebook page, friends posted tributes. "Always generous & gregarious, she was a mainstay of my social life in NYC a decade ago, visited us in Chile and so kindly lent us her apartment in NYC in July this year". I feel her loss intensely. Her brother, who is a famous orthopedician told Bangalore Mirror that the family was grieving and refused to say anything more. It's a bad loss for her friends of which there are many. There are about 14 species of sharks - including whale sharks, hammerhead sharks and tiger sharks - inhabiting the area, according to the agency's statement. The shark was first noticed by her guide who described it as a female tiger shark. Thinking of the good times.
