A second woman has died in a tourist area in Egypt as a result of a papal attack after horrific images emerged of another Austrian retiree being killed 650 feet away.
Egyptian authorities admitted another lifeless body was dumped out of the sea after being placed on a rock in Sahl Hasheesh, south of Hurghada, according to eyewitnesses.
The woman’s identity has not been disclosed but it is believed she was a Romanian tourist who was staying at the only five-star Premiere Le Reve adult hotel.
The latest death is believed to have occurred at the same time as the first woman from Kramsach, Tyrol, was walking in deep water while using a winged snake near the shore near Hurghada and telling her boyfriend: ‘I’ll be back inside. for a while ‘.
The photo then shows him screaming for safety with the help of a fly as the water around him turned a deep red in the Gulf of Sahl Hasheesh, south of Hurghada, in the Red Sea.
Terrified onlookers tried to confuse the animal, which is believed to be the Mako or Oceanic whitetip, but no one jumped to his aid.
An Egyptian health official said he was then taken to a private Nile Hospital where he could not be resurrected and is believed to have died from a ‘pain concussion’ – most likely a heart attack.
The Austrian embassy in Cairo has said he has been in the country for a month with his girlfriend, an Egyptian national, and was due to return home today.
Yesterday, Red Sea Authority officials told reporters that the attack site and Hurghada would be closed for all maritime activities including fishing and diving. The beach has been left uninhabited following the deaths but is likely to be reopened tomorrow.
The Austrian tourist, who was married to an Egyptian man, used flies to try to shout back on the beach. But he died of ‘shock shock’ after he reportedly lost an arm and a leg
Both attacks took place very close to the first woman taken from the water in Sahl Hasheesh, south of Hurghada,
The 68-year-old Austrian retiree died of ‘severe pain’ – most likely a heart attack – after an attack on Sahl Hasheesh bay, south of Hurghada, in the Red Sea on Friday.

What is Mako papa?
The Mako shark is a fast-moving, active and potentially dangerous species of the macrill shark family.
There are a variety of shortfin and longfin, depending on whether its water is clear or shallow.
Adults, valued for their fighting skills and frequent jumping from the water, can reach a height of 4.5 meters (14.8 feet) and weigh over 500 kg (about 1,100 pounds).
They hunt for fish such as herring, mackerel, and swordfish and small cetaceans.
The unnamed Russian tourist who recorded the photos – which are very graphic to be shown – after the first attack posted a new video showing the scene of the second tragic incident.
Using his finger to explain, he said: ‘This is the small lagoon we have seen [the shark] for the first time.
‘And we didn’t realize it was a pope.
‘The attack I recorded [earlier] he was here ‘- he points to the pier.
‘And the body of the second woman was brought out about here.’
Hundreds of tourists had witnessed the first attack against an Austrian woman who was breathing, wearing a fly, when she was attacked, and complained that there were no rescuers as swimmers fled the sea.
A Russian Witness stated: ‘I saw a pope turn around and drag a woman into the water. I could not act, but she was in the water. ‘
Earlier he described how he saw the woman ‘fighting [the shark] with his hands at first, but apparently the pope bit his leg with a locust first, then his hand, which threw it into the coral.
‘She was already sitting on the coral, showing her hand [and] foot. He was inside [a state of] shock. He did not cry, he did not cry, there is nothing. ‘
After a miraculous return to the mainland, the German woman was given CPR by doctors at the scene but died a few minutes later in an ambulance.
According to the Tiroler Tageszeitung, the Austrian Foreign Ministry communicates with relatives, including the woman’s daughter, and local authorities.
It said he was walking not far from the beach inside the bathing area where he had been placed when he was attacked and it is still unknown how the pope came near him.

The video shows witnesses on a close-up record of an attempt to rescue the woman and comment on her plight.
A group of Russian tourists are heard saying: ‘Where are the rescuers?
‘F ***, full of blood. Holy s ***.
‘Where is the rescue squad? ‘For f ****.
‘Guardians of life? Where are the lifeguards? He will die ***! ‘
The 68-year-old woman, who lost a leg and arm, died shortly after being taken to Nile Private Hospital in Hurghada, an Egyptian health official said.
He was alive when he was pronounced dead on Friday, the official said, adding that attempts by medical staff to resurrect him had failed.
The officer spoke on condition of anonymity because he did not have permission to speak to the media.
The governor of the Red Sea province closed the area for three days, banning ‘all maritime activities’ including diving, diving, skiing and kite.
Fishing boats were also banned from the water near Hurghada. An internal report quoted by the Russian news agency RIA Novosti added: ‘The woman died in an ambulance from a traumatic event.’
Reports from the AFP news agency and the Austrian media indicate that the attack was carried out by a pope named Mako, with Egyptian newspapers naming the animal as the Oceanic whitetip pope.
