Christine Armstrong was a strong and avid swimmer, her grieving spouse says. Her death in New South Wales was quick, he says, ‘she wouldn’t have even known what hit her.’

Struggling to keep back tears, the husband of woman killed by a bronze whaler shark in Australia told reporters Friday he is confident her death was quick and without suffering.

Rob Armstrong and his wife and friends were part of a swimming group that regularly meet at Tathra beach, a popular resort area in New South Wales.

Christine Armstrong had turned back from their morning swim, saying she was feeling tired after the couple’s recent trip to New Zealand.

“Her friends need to know I am absolutely positively certain, with all my experience, that she wouldn’t have even known what hit her,” he said, according to The Sydney Morning Herald.

He did not see the shark attack his wife.
