American tourist killed in shark attack while diving in Costa Rica


Financier Rohina Bhandari was killed in a shark attack in Costa Rica on 30 November.

A 49-year-old Indian-origin woman equity manager based in NY was killed last week by a tiger shark while scuba diving on a remote Costa Rican island, according to media reports.

Bhandari was ascending to the surface at the Manuelita dive site when her 26-year-old diving guide noticed the shark, which he described as a female tiger shark.

On Monday the US and South Korea began their largest-ever joint air exercise, described by Pyongyang as an "all-out provocation". Some local media report that B-1B bombers will also join aerial drills, but officials did not confirm their participation.

The shark savaged the two on Thursday as they were surfacing after a dive off Coco Island, a pristine national park located 500 kilometers (300 miles) off the Costa Rican mainland, the environment ministry said in a statement. It's a awful loss for her friends of which there are many. "She was such a wonderful person who loved life". She was always energetic and fun-loving. Her brother, a physician, declined to comment to the Bangalore Mirror, saying only that the family was grieving.

Friends paid tribute to Bhandari on social media. After her studies, she came back to Bengaluru to work in a five-star hotel.

Rohina after securing her MSc degree in finance from George Washington University had obtained Master of Business Management degree from Asian Institute of Management.
