SECONDS TOO LATE

Shark Kills Girl During Rescue

An 18-year-old girl’s life ended in tragedy on the coast of Brazil, where Bruna Gobbi was fatally bitten by a bull shark as she was being rescued from drowning. Gobbi and her cousin had been swimming but they began to struggle in the water, and lifeguards were dispatched to save them. The boat had just arrived when the giant shark bit Gobbi, severing her leg. The grisly incident was caught on video by other beachgoers, spreading terror through the country and leading lawmakers to recommend a ban on swimming near Recife, the site of multiple shark attacks.
