A woman was killed in an apparent shark attack off the coast of Maine on Monday, a rare occurrence that has only been recorded once before in the state by an unprovoked shark.
The Maine Department of Marine Resources on Tuesday identified the woman as 63-year-old Julie Dimperio Holowach, of New York City, who was attacked by a great white shark near Bailey Island.
“I want to first express my condolences to Julie’s friends and family, and to thank the individuals who responded and help bring this situation to a closure,” Commissioner Patrick Keliher said. “We urge swimmers and others recreating in or on the water in the Casco Bay region, and in particular near Bailey Island, to be aware of their surroundings and to avoid schools of fish or seals, which attract sharks.”
