Shark Attack Destroys Honeymoon

Check out Bas Rutten's Liver Shot on MMA Surge: A British honeymooner was killed by a shark on Tuesday while swimming close to the shore in the Seychelles. 30-year-old Ian Redmond was swimming off Anse Lazio beach on the island of Paslin when he was attacked by a 6-foot shark. He and his new wife, 27-year-old Gemma Houghton, had arrived on August 14th for their 2-week honeymoon. Tourists on the beach watched as he yelled "help!" and was mauled by the shark. A tourist told the Sun, "There was a horrific amount of blood in the water and it was exactly like a scene from Jaws." Redmond was brought to shore following the attack. He was rushed to the hospital and pronounced dead from massive blood loss. "Shark hunters" were flown in from South Africa to track a "rogue" shark that was thought to be in the waters. Seychelles' interior minister, Joel Morgan, ordered all beaches in the area closed and banned swimming in the area. Officials banned tourists from snorkeling or swimming until the shark is caught. The island's tourism head, Alain St Ange, sent his condolences to the family and told the Telegraph: "It was a freak accident. We are closing the beaches pending the arrival of experts from South Africa." Yet, earlier this month, a 36-year-old French man was killed by a shark on the same beach.
