Tragedy has struck after a shark attacked and ate a tourist swimming with his father on a beach in Hurghada, Egypt’s Red Sea.
The pictures were taken by some of the nearby ships, who could do nothing to save his life.
In the video, the man was swimming at the shore of the Dream Beach Sheraton when he was suddenly startled by the animal, which began to attack him.
When the fin of a large shark appeared beside him, the boy began to move in no fixed direction.
The victim, a 23-year-old man who was on holiday with his father, could even be heard yelling “Daddy, Daddy” until the water turned completely red.
“Oh dear God!” another tourist can be heard screaming.
The man remained motionless, and the lifeboat had just arrived when the shark reappeared, but it was too late to save his life.
“A Russian citizen died in a shark attack,” TASS quoted Viktor Voropayev, Russia’s consul general in Hurghada, as saying.
The same news source later identified the victim as ‘V. Popov’.
