A California college student was killed in a vicious shark attack during a Bahamas vacation with her family.

As RadarOnline.com has learned, Jordan Lindsey was snorkeling in the ocean near Rose Island at around 2:00 p.m. this Wednesday, June 26, when three sharks approached her.

Her parents saw the sharks coming from afar and desperately tried to warn her, but she heard them too late.

The sharks tore off her right arm and bit her left arm, legs and buttocks. According to the Royal Bahamas Police Force, the 21-year-old was taken to shore and rushed to a local hospital, where she was pronounced dead.

Earlier that day, Jordan and her family had traveled to the island on a tour bus to snorkel and see the famous wild pigs.

“Her name was Jordan Lindsey...we already miss her so much. She was so caring. She loved all animals. It's ironic she would die getting attacked by a shark,” Jordan's father, Michael Lindsey, told NBC following her death.

The family has now set up a GoFundMe page for Jordan to pay for her funeral expenses. Her body will be taken to Princess Margaret Hospital in Nassau for an autopsy and then transported to California by the U.S. Embassy, Deputy Commissioner Paul Rolle told WPLG.

Her death marked the first fatal shark attack in the Bahamas since 2010.
