A young boy and a tour guide have had their limbs bitten off in a shark attack near a popular Egyptian resort, it is reported.
The trio, who were among a group of six, were reportedly attacked by a two-metre-long Oceanic Whitetip shark.
The injured were rushed to a local hospital and Ukrainian officials said the child is now in critical care.
Despite surgery, his arm could not be saved, according to the Unian information agency.
The Egyptian guide lost a leg and the mother suffered deep but non-life threatening injuries, according to an anonymous local health official.
In 2010, three Russians and one Ukrainian were seriously injured within minutes of each other in one incident off Sharm El Sheikh.
Four days later a German woman was killed in a separate attack.
