Tiger shark attacks and kills American tourist in Costa Rica

The Environment Ministry said Friday the woman was killed the previous day by a tiger shark off the remote island

Bhandari's dive guide sustained a serious wound to one of his extremities in the attack, the ministry said.

Bhandari suffered "strong lacerations in both extremities", officials noted in a statement. The instructor saw the shark approaching and attempted to scare it off, but it still attacked the female tourist. The injured guide was taken to a hospital, where he was in stable condition and conscious, the Daily Mail reported. A team of doctors on site treated Jiménez and confirmed the death of Bhandari, the ministry said.

She was a senior director at WL Ross & Co. A company spokesperson told the newspaper that they are in "shock" at the attack and providing help to Bhandari's family. The females were the longest, measuring at more than 13 feet. They hadn't presented a threat until the Thursday attack.

"This is an isolated incident". The National Park is known for its scuba spots, where divers can spot a diverse array of marine life, including rays, dolphins and 14 different species of sharks, including hammerheads, according to authorities.

According to La Nacion, tiger sharks were not found in the area for three decades, but returned to the protected area about 10 years ago.

Rohina after securing her MSc degree in finance from George Washington University had obtained Master of Business Management degree from Asian Institute of Management. The News said she had been working for WL Ross since 2013, citing her LinkedIn page. Her brother, who is a famous orthopedician told Bangalore Mirror that the family was grieving and refused to say anything more. "She was also fun, we laughed a lot", said Bhandari's friend, Silvia Francescon.

"We were saddened to learn of her death, she was a dear friend and colleague", according to a statement from the company.
