who was Antonio Roseto Degli Abruzzi? Tourist killed in Caribbean shark attack

Tiger Shark attacked a 56-year-old man and he died on the Colombian island of San Andres.

Antonio Roseto Degli Abruzzi, an Italian visitor, sacrificed a huge piece of his right thigh after being crunched by an eight-foot tiger shark as he swam in a famous snorkelling region on the island called La Piscina.

Pictures distributed on social media and by regional press indicated Mr Abruzzi lying on his back after the outbreak with blood dripping from his injury before he was sent to the hospital. 

He then reportedly got on into hypovolemic shock, due to the proportion of blood he missed, before expiring.

The region is replenished with motels and diving centres and is considered one of the best spots to snorkel on the island.

An island government spokesman told of the incident: “There are diving programmes with specialists in which sharks pass nearby, but nothing has ever happened.”

Diving educator Mirla Zambrano, 50, added: “We are all extremely shocked. It’s the first time a shark has ambushed a visitor in San Andres.”

Tiger sharks are second barely to the tremendous white in recorded deadly attacks on humans, although they are however extremely unusual.

According to National Geographic, tiger sharks are between 10 and 14 feet in size and weigh between 385 and 635kg.

Tiger sharks are called for the dark, vertical lines set up, particularly on youths; these vast, blunt-nosed predators have a duly earned prestige as man-eaters.

However because they have a close entirely undiscerning palate, they are not liable to swim away after crunching a human, as considerable whites repeatedly do.

Footage distributed on social media indicated the two sharks supposed to have been implicated in Friday’s attack swimming in the clear water where the Italian holidaymaker was destroyed.

Marine biologist Rodrigo Lopez told reporters: “People are very nervous about what’s occurred and they’re not allowing people to go into the water.

The person who was present at the Time of attack said that he was a good swimmer, he was into the sea for some time and when he moved further he started shouting for help and was enveloped by blood.
