Australia's Deadly Shark Streak ContinuesNewser — Polly Davis Doig
Australia is having a run deadly enough to make one think twice about going to the beach, with a 55-year-old man becoming the eighth shark fatality of the year in an attack Sunday at Cable Beach, on the Indian Ocean coast.
The man was attacked by an unknown species of shark, suffered wounds to his thighs and hand, and died at the scene. The beach has since been closed and is under patrol.
(One shark attacked a woman, and her husband was not having it.)
