Austrian Red Sea shark attack victim - as it emerges a SECOND woman was killed on the same day 650ft from where the 68-year-old died after losing her arm and leg snorkeling off Hurghada

The Austrian tourist, who was married to an Egyptian man, used a flipper to try and clamour back to shore

The local Green Party in Kramsach, Tyrol named Elisabeth Sauer, who was local councillor from 1998 to 2004, as the first woman who was attacked at around same time as the other tourist.   

She was walking in shallow water while using a snorkel with fins not far from the beach near Hurghada and told her partner, an Austrian of Egyptian descent, 'I'll go back in for a moment'.

Footage then shows her desperately trying to get towards safety with the aid of a flipper as the waters around her turned scarlet red in Sahl Hasheesh bay, south of Hurghada, in the Red Sea.

Terrified onlookers tried to distract the predator, which is believed to be either a Mako or a Oceanic whitetip shark, but no one jumped in to help her. 

An Egyptian health official said she was then taken to the private Nile Hospital where she could not be resuscitated and is believed to have died from 'painful shock' - most likely a heart attack. 

It is thought she had been in the country for a month, arriving on June 2, with her partner and was due to return home today. 

Yesterday, officials at the Red Sea Governorate told reporters that area of the attack and Hurghada would be closed to all sea activity including fishing and diving. The beach has been deserted in the wake of the deaths but will most likely reopen tomorrow.
