In the recorded incident, Mr. Popov can be seen struggling in the water, encircled by the shark. The predator swiftly moved towards him, eventually dragging him beneath the surface. Despite the swift response of witnesses, including a lifeguard and a diver who raised the alarm and rushed to his aid, their efforts proved futile as the young man tragically lost his life.

Eyewitnesses, including the victim's father, were left horrified as the attack unfolded on the beach. Disturbingly, one individual captured on the video can be heard remarking, "Here she is eating his remains."

Subsequent investigations by the Egyptian Ministry of the Environment have confirmed that the responsible shark was a tiger shark. Reports from local Russian media outlets indicate that the beach was teeming with people who witnessed the tragic event.

Reacting swiftly to the incident, rescue personnel and specialists from the Ministry of the Environment managed to locate and capture the shark. Further examination of the captured specimen will take place in the laboratory, with the aim of determining the underlying factors that may have contributed to the attack. Notably, this particular shark has been associated with previous incidents, heightening the urgency of the investigation.

Tiger sharks, renowned as one of the "big three" species most prone to attacking humans, join the ranks of great white and bull sharks. These formidable creatures grow to substantial sizes, enabling them to inflict significant harm on their victims. Additionally, their reputation for heightened aggression distinguishes them from other shark species.
