The extraordinary double attack has left a huge stretch of the popular tourist coast closed – with fears of a man-eating shark still sniffing the beaches.

The 68-year-old snorkeler had apparently told her partner she was going into the water for “a moment” before she was killed.

Now, authorities have admitted that a second woman was murdered around the same time.

Her lifeless body was recovered from the sea after it was found on a reef, according to eyewitnesses.

Two sources claim the body of the Romanian tourist in his late 40s was discovered just hours after the initial attack.

She is said to have stayed in the adult five-star Premiere Le Reve hotel.

The same unnamed Russian tourist who filmed the aftermath of the first attack posted a new video showing the location of the second fatal incident.

Using his finger to explain, he said: “This is a small lagoon where we saw” [the shark] For the first time.

“And we didn’t know it was a shark.

“The attack I filmed [earlier] was here” – he points to the pier.

“And the second woman’s body was pulled out about here.”

According to reports, tourists stormed out of the water when the first woman was attacked.

And others “distract the shark from the victim” from the shore and a nearby pier.

They complained that there were no lifeguards as swimmers fled the sea.

The Russian witness said: “I saw the shark twisting and turning the woman in the water.

“I couldn’t film it, but she was twisted in the water.”

Earlier he told how he saw the woman “fight” [the shark] first with her hands, but apparently the shark bit off her leg first with a flipper, then her hand, throwing it at the corals.

“She was already sitting on the corals and showed her hand [and] leg.

“She was in [a state of] shock. She didn’t even scream, didn’t cry, nothing.”

The pensioner is said to be from Kramsach in the Tyrolean Unterland.

She had been on vacation in Egypt since June 2 and was on the beach with her partner of Egyptian descent.

The beast that attacked her was an endangered shortfin mako shark, which can swim at up to 46 km/h.

In the wake of the two attacks, authorities imposed a bathing ban in the area.
