BBC News:- A 21-year-old student has been killed by three sharks while on holiday in the Bahamas with her family.

Jordan Lindsey was snorkelling at the time and reportedly couldn’t hear warnings from her parents while she was in the water.

Jordan, from California, was taken to hospital but pronounced dead on 26 June, according to local police.

In a tribute, her family said: “Jordan had the most beautiful, gentle soul and she will be missed deeply.”

“She was a beloved daughter, sister, girlfriend, and friend,” they continued.

Jordan was bitten by the sharks on her arms, legs, and bottom – and lost her right arm in the attack.

Her family have set-up a GoFundMe page to cover costs of her funeral and to pay to bring her body back to California.

She was studying communications at Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles.

A statement from the university says they were “saddened” to hear the news about Jordan, adding she was “a devoted animal lover and climate change advocate”.
