Shark Kills Peace Corps Volunteer!

Peace Corps Volunteer, Tessa Horan, was attacked and killed by a shark yesterday evening in Vava'u (an island in the South Pacific). After a game of soccer, she and her friends went for a relaxing swim to cool off but she was suddenly pulled under the water by something! When she surfaced there was blood everywhere. They swam back screaming for help, but Tessa died soon after they got to shore... the shark had bitten off her right leg from the thigh down. Ack!
