Hand Of Missing Tourist Found In Shark’s Stomach

Sky News:–  The hand of a Scottish tourist has been found in the stomach of a shark caught near Reunion Island in the Indian Ocean.

The man disappeared while snorkelling in Hermitage Lagoon on Saturday.

The 44-year-old’s remains were identified by his wedding ring, according to a story originally published by local news channel Reunion La 1ere.

He has not been publicly named.

The tiger shark was caught just over four miles from the lagoon, among several captured for research earlier this week.

A spokesman for local search and rescue – the Centre Regional Operationnel de Surveillance et de Sauvetage – said it is unclear whether the man drowned and was eaten by the shark, or whether he was attacked by it.

He said: “The victim was certainly swimming but it is not clear whether he was attacked or he was already dead when he was eaten.
