The tragedy occurred after a shark attacked and ate a tourist who was swimming with his father on a beach in Hurghada, in Egypt’s Red Sea.
The photos were taken by some of the nearby boats, which were unable to do anything to save his life.
In the video, the man was swimming to the edge of the Dream Beach Sheraton when the animal suddenly startled him and began attacking him.
When the fin of a large shark appeared next to him, the boy began to move aimlessly.
The victim, a 23-year-old man who was on vacation with his father, was even heard yelling “daddy, daddy” until the water turned completely red.
“Oh Lord!” another tourist can be heard yelling.
The man remained motionless, and the lifeboat had just arrived when the shark reappeared, but it was too late to save his life.
“A Russian citizen was killed in a shark attack,” TASS said, citing Viktor Voropayev, Russia’s consul general in Hurghada.
The same news source later identified the victim as ‘V. Popov’.
