“There have been lots of shark attacks all up and down the east coast of the United States of america. However, I am very sorry for the family whose daughter was tragically killed by a shark,” D ” Aguilar continued. “It’s very, very hard, and everyone in the press wants to know how this is going to affect tourism, how will it affect people coming to the country.
