Shark visit ends badly

Townsville Bulletin - - NEWS -

DIVERS saw a white pointer days be­fore a man was killed by a shark as his daugh­ter watched in hor­ror off Tas­ma­nia’s east coast. The man, in his late 40s from Ho­bart, was div­ing for scal­lops with his daugh­ter early on Satur­day near Maria Is­land. When he failed to sur­face, the woman, in her 20s, went back down to check on him and saw a large shark at­tack­ing her fa­ther. He was pulled up by the air hose he was at­tached to but had been fa­tally in­jured. Glam­or­gan Spring Bay Mayor Michael Kent said the area was not known for sharks.
