During the summer, when temperatures on our planet are at their highest, activities like swimming, surfing, or simply lounging on the beach are preferred. However, hazardous animals occasionally lurk in these turquoise waters and may pose threats to vacationers. Along similar lines, Vladimir Popov, a 23-year-old man from Russia, was having a quality time at the beach when his hiatus transformed into a scene from a horror film. In the Red Sea, close to the Egyptian tourist destination of Hurghada, a shark attacked and killed him.

In the summer, Egyptian beaches see an influx of visitors from all over the world. This also applied to Vladimir Popov. He and his father, Yury, had been residing in Hurghada for a while. While snorkeling off the shore of the Egyptian Red Sea resort of Hurghada, Popov was attacked by a tiger shark, whose photographs and videos have since gone viral on the internet. One eyewitness to this tragedy later detailed what they saw, stating, “It’s eating his remains now.”

Because of this tragedy, Egyptian officials have decided to block 46 miles of shoreline around Hurghada. Watersports on the beaches will also be suspended until Sunday as officials examine the reason for the incident. The shark was reportedly taken from the ocean in a boat and battered to death after it was brought ashore. The authorities later confiscated it for further examination, claiming that this particular sort of attack was exceedingly unusual.
