A woman reportedly got killed by a boat propeller after she jumped into the water to retrieve her flip-flops in the Caribbean Sea.

Natalia Andrea Larrañaga Fajardo, 26, of Cali, was visiting White Watta beach on San Andrés island in the Caribbean Sea on Nov. 27. During her visit, she hopped onto a boat full of her acquaintances. However, after realizing that she accidentally left her sandals behind, she jumped back into the ocean to retrieve them. Seconds after she jumped into the ocean to retrieve her sandals, she was accidentally struck by the boat’s propeller, New York Post reported.

A gruesome video of her final moments has emerged online. In the video, people on nearby vessels can be seen screaming as Fajardo bled heavily from catastrophic injuries to her legs and lower back. Fajardo was eventually pulled onto a jet ski and rushed to a hospital for immediate treatment.

After she was rushed to a hospital for treatment, hospital staff took her into surgery and gave her multiple blood transfusions, attempting to resuscitate her. After extensive surgery and several blood transfusions, Fajardo went into cardiac arrest. Fajardo was pronounced dead at around 2:30 a.m. on Nov. 28.

Following the incident, the boat and its crew are now both reportedly under investigation by area authorities, Miami Herald reported.

Fajardo was reportedly from Cali, a city about 350 miles southwest of Bogotá, Colombia. San Andrés island is about 445 miles northwest of mainland Colombia, near the coast of Nicaragua.

Similarly, a few months before, a mother of two from Chicago, had both her feet severed by a boat propeller on Lake Michigan.

“I thought I was dying,” she told of her harrowing experience. “I fought for my life for seconds which felt like minutes. I began to drown, I couldn’t swim.”

After the horrifying incident, Batochir, 34, underwent a below-the-knee amputation and nerve surgery for her injuries, after which she began the grueling rehabilitation process.

“Anyone who knows me knows that I love to dance, love music, and enjoying life itself with family,” she lamented at the time. “My life has completely changed because of one unfortunate tragedy.”
