On Tuesday, September 6th, a woman was fatally injured in Green Cay, Bahamas. Tour guides and family members recused the victim, but her injuries proved too severe. Witnesses identified a bull shark as the species responsible. However, ISAF has yet to confirm this information. ISAF has only just begun this investigation and has yet to determine the cause of the incident.
In the last decade, there have been seven confirmed unprovoked incidents in the Bahamas. Only one of which in 2019 was fatal. The most common species in these incidents were bull and tiger sharks. Historically, in the Bahamas, there have been baiting operations for tourist dives which habituate sharks to associating humans with food.
