Great white shark bites surfer in half


A man in his early 20s was surfing with a friend early this morning off the west coast of Australia when he was mauled by a great white shark, which bit him in half. A jet-skier who witnessed the scene described how there was only “half a torso” left of the victim, and that he was himself attacked as he tried to help. Police are searching for remains, but have yet to find any. Read for instance Mirror .

In another incident the other day, two divers had a close encounter with a great white shark, up to the point where they had to prod it away with their spearguns. There have been five fatal shark incidents off Western Australia since September.
