A surfer was bitten in half in a savage shark attack off Australia's west coast Saturday, witnesses and officials said, the fifth such fatality in the region in less than a year.

The man was surfing near Wedge Island, north of Perth, on Saturday morning with a friend when he was mauled by the shark, suffering severe and extensive injuries.

A man jet-skiing near the surfers said it was a gruesome scene, with "half a torso" all that remained of the victim.

"There was just blood everywhere and a massive, massive (great) white shark circling the body," he told ABC television, estimating the fish was four or five metres (13 to 16 feet) long.

"I reached to grab the body and the shark came at me on the jet-ski and tried to knock me off. I did another loop and when I came back to the body the shark took it."

yikes!  I'd say stay out of the water in Western Australia  eek

This is what keeps Australia's unemployment rate down.

BTW, I just read the article and it's so fucking stupid it makes my head hurt.  More than 40 fucking million sharks will be killed this year and they wonder if Great Whites should be taken off protected species status because 5 people have been killed this year.

I think a "bright side of life" headline would be...
Man's Top Half Survives Shark Attack

Maybe "Survives" is too optimistic? If so, then...

Yes, because you should definitely base your opinions on the link text rather than reading the story.   Roll Eyes

you are quite dense if you actually thought I was serious. (PS.  Not only would that be stupid, but I read the whole article as well!)  So roll your eyes right back at ya.  I was just pointing out that they put it in the wrong order on the link, which was interesting.
