    Onlookers screamed in horror as a young woman was shredded to death by a boat propeller after she jumped into the sea to retrieve her flip flops.

    Natalia Andrea Larranaga Fajardo, 26, died at White Wata Beach in San Andres, Colombia, as her injuries turned the water red with blood and nearby boaters wailed at the sight, according to mobile phone footage.

    The incident, on November 27, saw Natalia, from Cali, Colombia, sustain horrific injuries to her legs, buttocks, and lower back.

    The young woman was taken by jet ski to a hospital on the island, where she underwent multiple blood transfusions and surgery to repair her arteries.

    Medics also had to resuscitate her after she suffered a cardiac arrest.

    After the operation, she was admitted to the ICU, but she suffered another cardiac arrest – this time fatal. That was in the early hours of the following morning.

    According to reports, the boat involved in the incident was carrying 24 tourists and two crew members.

    Dimar, Colombia's maritime authority, said in a statement: "The vessel has been immobilised and its two crew members have been placed at the disposal of the relevant authorities by the Coast Guard of the Colombian Navy as part of the due process of investigation."

    Officials in San Andres reminded swimmers to keep clear of moving boats and to notify crew if entering the water.

    Juan Carlos Escotet Alviarez, the youngest son of Spanish-Venezuelan billionaire banker Juan Carlos Escotet Rodriguez, recently suffered the same fate in Miami.
