Ian Redmond, 30, was snorkeling off the Anse Lazio beach in Praslin when a 6-foot shark attacked and killed him.

His wife Gemma Houghton, 27, was reportedly sunbathing on the beach when the incident happened.

"We heard screaming and people started running down the beach towards the water.

"Someone had seen a fin sticking out of the water, and then we saw a dinghy pulling a man from the water.

"I saw the swimmer, who was missing a huge chunk of flesh from his left leg, so much so that I could see the bone of his thigh. He was sickeningly pale, but still had his flippers on both feet.

"At this point, a woman ran over and started screaming. She said, 'That's my husband. We were just married.'

"Someone grabbed her and tried to keep her away. People all over the beach were just hugging whoever was close to them or trying to keep any children from witnessing what was going on." an American man told Daily Mail.

Just last August 2nd, another shark attack incident killed a 36-year-old French tourist diving in the area.

Authorities reportedly had closed the beach and there is an ongoing hunt for the shark killer.
