One witness told the Telegram channel Baza: "It’s a terrible thing, the remains of this guy are over there. I’m shaking. Right in front of my eyes, the shark ate that guy. I think I need a drink. I feel really bad".

Vladimir’s father Yury told news network 112: “My son was attacked by a shark, it all happened in seconds”.

He said there had been no-one nearby to help Vladimir was the shark attacked. “What kind of help can you give?” He said. “This ‘meat grinder’ happened in 20 seconds, he was just dragged under the water”.

He added: “This is an absolutely ridiculous coincidence, because it is a safe beach. There are ships and yachts around. It's never happened there. They usually attack on wild beaches. It's just some kind of evil fate.”
