Three swimmers injured by shark attack in Egypt
One of the victims is in critical condition. Most of the waters around Sharm El-Sheikh have been made off-limits until authorities can capture the shark and release it into the open ocean.
There have been some grim incidents involving sharks in recent months, including the human remains found in the stomach of a shark in the Bahamas. That said, it's important to remember that the average swimmer has a very low risk of being attacked by one. You're much more likely to drown. So if you're into the ocean, keep an eye out for sharks, but be more aware of things like weather and currents.
