An American woman, 21-year-old Jordan Lindsay, was killed Wednesday in a shark attack in the Bahamas, a spokesperson for the Royal Bahamas Police Force said.

Lindsay, a communications student at Loyola Marymount University, was attacked by three sharks while snorkeling on an expedition to swim with wild pigs with her family near Rose Island.

Deputy Commissioner Paul Rolle said Lindsay’s family spotted the sharks and shouted warnings to no avail. The Torrance, California, woman was pulled from the water and rushed to a hospital in nearby Nassau, where she was pronounced dead.

She was the only victim in the attack, and the first person killed by sharks in the Bahamas in more than a decade.
