German tourist dies of wounds from shark attack in Hawaii

HONOLULU - A 20-year-old German tourist who lost an arm in a shark attack off the coast of Maui last week died of her wounds on Wednesday at a hospital in Hawaii, her family said.
Jana Lutteropp, 20, had been hospitalized since she was attacked while snorkeling near Maui and had been on life support prior to her death, a hospital spokeswoman said.
"Jana fought hard to stay alive. However, we are sad to say that she lost her fight today," Lutteropp's mother, Jutta Lutteropp, and sister Julia Broeske said in a statement released by Maui Memorial Medical Center.
