Shark attack on Kitesurfer

TAKEN FROM SKY NEWS:
Stephen Schafer, 38, was killed in a rare mass shark attack off the coast of southern Florida whilst kitesurfing off Stuart Beach. A lifeguard spotted him floating about a quarter of a mile from shore and paddled out to find him encircled by sharks. He was brought back to shore and given CPR before being taken to hospital, but was pronounced dead.
According to the International Shark Attack File compiled at the Florida Museum of Natural History, the county has never been the scene of a fatal shark attack before. A researcher said juvenile great white sharks could have been responsible for Mr Schafer's death.
