Great White Shark Fatal Attack Scallop Diver

Post by Ross Compe » Thu Jul 30, 2015 10:15 am

A scallop diver has lost his life in a tragic shark attack near Maria Island,Tasmania. The diver was an ammateur and was taken underwater not to recover from his wounds despite some desperate and brave attempts to save the man.
A Great White Shark estimated to be of approx 4.5 metres was clearly seen during the attack and was spotted in a nearby location only a day before and again after the attack locally.
Sad news and a reminder of the perils and associated dangers of our sport.
