FATAL – 22 October 2011 – Rottnest Island, Western Australia – diver attacked
A 32-year-old diver (name not reported) was killed by a three-metre great white while diving 500 metres north of Rottnest Island, Western Australia.
Initial reports are quite thin. All they say is that witnesses on the dive boat saw a large amount of bubbles before the man surfaced with ‘horrific’ and ‘obviously fatal’ injuries.
Two people on the boat described the shark as a 3-metre great white.
It is the third fatal shark attack off the west coast of Australia in two months.
The blog will be updated when we have more details.
