The student who was killed during a shark attack on the Bahamas was dragged to the shore by her desperate mother, who pulled her out of the water while snorkeling together.
Jordan Lindsey, 21, from Torrance, California snorkeled at Rose Island in the waters around the North Atlantic Ocean around 2:00 PM when she was attacked.
Her mother Kami was snorkeling with her daughter when the horror unfolded, her family said.
Lindsey & # 39; s ruined father, Michael Lindsay, told ABC news that his wife was only a few meters away during the attack.
He said: & Myself, my two boys, and Jordan's girlfriend, Gianna, were swimming on another part of the island, just on the beach.
& # 39; My wife, Kami and Jordan went snorkeling on another part of the island. My wife was near Jordan, a few meters away, when the shark attacked.
& # 39; She said it happened so quickly and nobody screamed. My wife went to Jordan and pulled Jordan alone to the coast. The medical staff said they still had to do an autopsy. My wife said no one told her there were three sharks. & # 39;
Michael added: & # 39; Jordan was 21 and so & # 39; n great daughter and person. We already miss her terribly. & # 39;
It is because a biologist says there was probably a trigger that caused sharks to attack the university student while snorkeling.
Dr. Erich Ritter, a shark connoisseur investigating the incident, said Thursday that shark behavior was not normal. He says they may have been triggered by something, such as that chum being dumped in the neighborhood.

The shark-contaminated waters of the Bahamas:
The Bahamas are densely populated by sharks and have different shark diving locations where feeding the animals is common.
Tiger sharks, hammerhead sharks, black tips and bull sharks all navigate the waters that tourists flock to every year.
In the last deadly shark attack in 2010, fishermen discovered a partially decomposed foot in the mouth of a tiger shark.
Once they were on the land, they cut open their belly to discover a whole corpse.
It was reported to the Royal Bahamian Defense Force Base in Nassau, who said they believed the man drowned, although there was no further information.

Holton said she was snorkeling at the exact spot where Lindsey was attacked, just 45 minutes before the predators approached.
& # 39; About 45 minutes after we had been snorkeling at that exact spot, people came to us and said that a girl was bitten by a shark and it looked pretty serious, & # 39; Holton stated to DailyMail.com.
& # 39; We have not seen anything on my side of the island. But everyone came out of the water and we were pretty scared, & she added.
& # 39; When we were back on the boat, there were two small sharks in the water and there was one large shark that I had sent my brother a photo of that was still in the water, & # 39; she said.
Holton says that after the attack, several tour boat workers jumped into the water to rescue Lindsey and an emergency ship arrived on site to rush her to a hospital.
Lindsey was on a boat trip to Rose Island (above) – an 11 mile stretch of uninhabited beach off the Nassau coast – for a snorkeling and wild pig excursion when the attack took place around 2:00 PM
& # 39; I actually wish I had been there at that exact moment. Not that there is more than you can do in that situation, but you wonder, & said Holton, who is a doctor.
Holton said the guides on the tour boat were shocked when they saw the sharks appear.
& # 39; I think they were all pretty stunned and shocked, to be honest from what I understand it was pretty serious, & # 39; she said.
The investigation is ongoing. Lindsey was the only victim in the attack.
