WORLD : Shark Kills Australian Surfer
A surfer was killed after a shark dragged him from his board while bathers watched in horror at a popular South Australia beach which has become notorious for shark attacks.
Police said today the injured surfer died as his friend towed him 200 yards to the beach. The attack came while the two men surfed off Waitpinga Beach, 50 miles south of Adelaide, just before dusk Thursday. Police said the victim, 27-year-old Matthew Foale, was dangling his leg in the water when the shark grabbed it and dragged him underwater.
