Fatal shark attack in Orient Bay: The young woman was from Caen (Calvados)


It was in the columns of the Ouest-France newspaper, the leading daily in France, that we learned yesterday the identity of the person who succumbed to the bites of a tiger shark last Thursday in Orient Bay.

38-year-old Pauline Richard, from the city of Caen in Calvados, had put down her bags about a month ago in Saint-Martin where she had planned to spend a sabbatical year. Unfortunately, it was during a simple swim with a friend that this excellent swimmer and sailing enthusiast lost her life.

Pauline Richard was an engineer in industrial risk management. She had been working since 2013 as “energy efficiency director” for the company “Economie l'énergie SAS” in Paris, after two years in the Netherlands. _AF
