FATAL – 1 August 2011 – Anse Lazio, Praslin, Seychelles – diver attacked
In a fairly sketchy AFP report published in Gulf News, it’s reported that a French scuba diver (a 36-year-old male, name not reported) died from wounds from a possible shark attack while diving off Anse Lazio, Praslin isle in the Seychelles archipelago. The incident occurred on Monday 1 August 2011.
Some officials speculated the wounds could have been caused by a boat propeller. An autopsy was being conducted today (2 August).
A police spokesperson said tourists on the beach tried to help him, “but he died as his injuries were serious”.
No other details were reported.
