Swimmer, 68, killed by shark in Egypt after ‘having arm & leg ripped off’ pictured after tragic final words to husband


A SWIMMER tragically killed by a shark attack at a resort in Egypt after telling her partner she was just going back into the water “for a moment” has been pictured.

The Austrian tourist who was killed by a shark attack, has been named by her local Green Party in Kramsach as 68-year-old Elisabeth Sauer, who served as a councillor from 1998 to 2004.

The Austrian embassy in Cairo said she had been in the country for a month with her Egyptian partner – and was due to return home to Austria today, Mail Online reports.

The Green Party in Kramsach said: “We mourn the passing of our Elisabeth Sauer… who died in a tragic accident.

“Our heartfelt condolences go out to the family.

“Elisabeth was a committed Green from the first hour in Kramsach, councillor from 1998 to 2004, for many years loyal substitute councillor… may she rest in peace.

“We would like to take this opportunity to express our sincere condolences and compassion. She will forever be remembered for her warm and humanly connecting way.”

The pensioner was walking in shallow water while using a snorkel with fins not far from the beach near Hurghada, on the opposite coastline from Sharm el Sheikh.

She reportedly told her partner: “I’ll go back in for moment.”

The 68-year-old reportedly had her arm and leg ripped off by the shark – and then later died from her injuries.

Screaming and horrified beach goers were stunned by the shark attack – but no one jumped in to help.

She is said to have died from “painful shock” and a heart attack after being taken the Nile Hospital.

Egyptian authorities have now closed part of the coastline amid fears the shark could still be lurking nearby in the Red Sea after the bloodbath shark attack.

Red Sea Governorate officials are hopeful they will reopen tomorrow.
