DailyMail: An award-winning film and TV director was today mauled to death by a Great White shark as he swam off a popular New Zealand tourist beach. Adam Strange, 46, was attacked and pulled under water about 200 metres from Auckland’s Muriwai Beach at around 1.30pm in front of hundreds of beach tourists. Up to three more sharks were said to have been drawn to the attack as police officers fired at least 20 shots from a lifeboat and helicopter in a desperate bid to rescue him. The Great White eventually let go and moved away. It took rescuers – including three lifeguards who knew the victim – 30 minutes to retrieve the father-of-one’s body. The remains of a shark were later dragged up on the beach. Pio Mose, who was fishing off rocks beside the beach, described how he saw a ‘huge’ shark attack the lone swimmer 50 yards from where he was standing. ‘All of a sudden we saw the shark fin and next minute, boom, attack him and then blood everywhere on the water,’ told stuff.co.nz. He told how the man appeared to struggle with the shark before it swam away – and then it, and others, came back.

 

How much must it suck to live in Australia and New Zealand and have to deal with this shit on a regular basis?! I mean your odds of getting attacked by a Great White is like 2:1 so swimming would just be out of the question for me. If I need to cool off I’ll buy a pool or even run through the goddamn sprinkler before I’m taking my chances with man-eating sharks all day. Even if I survived the attack I would probably die from the rain of bullets shooting through the water from the coast guard. Just another horrible way to go out.
