A 57-year-old man, believed to be originally from the UK, has been described as a ‘wonderful father’ after he was the victim of a shark attack on Australia’s west coast.
Emergency crews were scouring waters for a missing swimmer off #Australia‘s west coast Saturday after reports of a shark attack, with witnesses telling local media two predators were involved.
“He was a wonderful man, a wonderful father, and he loved his exercise.” The wife of Paul Millachip, who was originally from London, pays tribute to him after he was killed by a shark while swimming off the coast of Western Australia.
What people are saying?
David Bance There’s no accounting for the actions of some people, it’s always sad to read of unnecessary deaths and our sympathies go out to his family, but he should have known that sharks abound in that part of the world, as do salt water crocs, he should have swum in a pool.
Jacky Why is it that a man who died from a shark attack in Australia is considered newsworthy but Richard Ratcliffe’s hunger strike isn’t? His story is heart breaking and the government aren’t listening.
Tjungarayi My sympathies to his family, but who swims 45 meters out in the sea in WA? So many shark attacks there.
