    PEMBROKE PARK, Fla. – An American tourist was killed Wednesday in a shark attack in the Bahamas.

    The Royal Bahamas Police Force announced that the woman, identified as Jordan Lindsey, 21, of Torrance, California, was attacked shortly after 2 p.m. near Rose Island as she was snorkeling.

    According to Deputy Commissioner Paul Rolle, Lindsey was attacked by three sharks and suffered bites to her arms, legs and buttocks. Her right arm was bitten off, he said.
