Gemma Redmond, speaking somberly and sensibly about the loss of her husband, Ian Redmond, who was attacked by a shark yesterday, said, “It is the ocean and wildlife can choose to come and go as it pleases.”
This is the most gracious statement I have ever heard by a woman who must feel incredibly cheated out of a long life with her late new husband. They had not even been on their honeymoon yet. We cannot blame the shark, but Gemma Redmond is most worthy of our condolences. The accident took place on Anse Lazio beach, on the island of Praslin.
