Did anyone of you read about this?

According to the BBC a British scientist was killed by Leopard Seal when she was snorkelling in the antarctic..
Doesn't that sound strange? I have read about people playing with seals while freediving.. so do you think that the seal wanted to dive with the scientist and because of that pulled her underwater??

Here is BBC website to check out the story

Safe diving!
