The government Marine Corps says that a woman was killed in a clear attack by a shark off the coast of Maine, a rare event that was once recorded in the state by an unjustified penny.
The Marine Corps says an eyewitness saw the woman swimming off the shore of Bailey Island when she was injured in what appeared to be a shark attack.
Two bikers helped her reach the beach, and an ambulance provided more help. But her death was declared at the scene of the accident.
The woman’s name was not available. A New England shark expert says that only one unexplained shark attack has been recorded in Maine.
