A French woman was horrifically attacked by a shark off the coast of Tahiti in French Polynesia.

According to AFP, the 35-year-old woman was swimming in the ocean in Moorea island on a whale-watching trip when an oceanic whitetip shark bit off both hands and one of her breasts.

She was then airlifted to a hospital in Tahiti and was reported to be in critical condition after losing a lot of blood.

Local officials said the woman was lucky to have survived the attack.

“Luckily for her, there were two nurses on the scene who could deliver first aid,” firefighter Jean-Jacques Riveta said.

“When we got to the hotel jetty, she was conscious but in a critical condition. She had lost a lot of blood and both her hands had been cut off at the forearm, along with part of her chest,” he added.

The woman is currently in stable condition, but, has lost both her hands at the forearm.
