A 63 year-old retired fashion executive was killed by a Great White shark while swimming with her daughter in Maine.
The incident marks the first recorded fatal shark in Maine’s history.
As The Daily Mail reports:
A 63-year-old retired fashion executive heard giggling with her daughter before she was killed in a great white shark attack had retired early to live her dream life, friends say.
Julie Dimperio Holowach was swimming in a wetsuit with her daughter near Bailey Island, Harpswell, Maine, on Monday afternoon when an eyewitness saw her ‘dip under the water’…
A pair of kayakers nearby paddled out in an attempt to rescue the woman but by the time they arrived it was already too late.
The Kayakers, Charlie Wemyss-Dunn, from Boston, and his wife, heard screams and thought someone might be drowning.
He said: ‘We saw what was in the water. We saw her condition.’
But the Great White responsible for her death is still on the loose, and the question that remains is: will it strike again?
