Dream vacation gone wrong… An individual killed by a shark while snorkelling in the Bahamas while on vacation with her family earlier this week was on Wednesday identified as a Pennsylvania college employee.

Caroline DiPlacido, 58, of Millcreek Township, worked as a project coordinator at Gannon University when she died on the water excursion Tuesday, university officials said.

DiPlacido had arrived to the Bahamas with four other family members, taking a Royal Caribbean Cruise before her party undertook an independent shore excursion to the Green Cays, a picturesque and favorite snorkelling location amongst travelers, 6ABC reported.
