A man horrifically taken by a great white off a Sydney beach had been training for a weekend charity swim. The keen diver was killed in the Harbour City’s first fatal shark attack in nearly 60 years.
A British man has been killed in Sydney’s first shark attack in nearly 60 years. 35 year old Simon Nellist was training for a charity swim when he was attacked yesterday.
Authorities have closed more than a dozen of Sydney’s most popular beaches while they search for a large shark that killed a man on Wednesday. It is the first fatal shark attack in Sydney in 59 years, and the first off an ocean beach in Sydney in 86 years.
What people are saying?
Phillip Hatton And now, as usual, they want to find the shark and kill it, typical human reaction to when we encroach into animal territory and something happens. It´s not like they didn´t know that sharks are in that area. Humans, nature´s biggest mistake.
Robert Davidson Awful for deceased and his loved ones. Fact is Australian waters are rich with wildlife and apex predators. It’s THEIR environment. THEIR habitat. Swimmers/surfers/divers do so at their own risk. I don’t see why this shark should be hunted down.
