A tourist on a bodyboard was killed in a horrific attack by what was believed to have been a great white shark near a beach on Australia's west coast. The 21-year-old was dead before fellow surfers could drag him ashore at a popular surfing spot called Boneyards, near Bunker Bay, about 3.5 hours south of Perth, the West Australian reports.
The shark had pulled the man below the surface and ripped his legs off, horrifying those watching from the crowded beach, the Daily Mail reports. The paper quoted Kurt Morris, a diner at the nearby Bunker Bay Cafe — reportedly packed at the time of the attack — as saying he'd been told by the man's friends that he had been torn apart.
"They were saying they were just two meters away from him," he said. "From the waist down, it was all gone."
Good luck and safe fishing.
