The first shark attack in San Diego in forever happened this morning at Fletcher Cove, Solana Beach. Fox 6 reports the victim’s leg was severed below the knee and he bled to death. The attack comes after a week in which a 3-4 foot baby great white was spotted cruising around Cardiff reefs. As is often the case during events like this, the Surfer Mag forum already has a post with links to more info.
It’s kind of a weird scene here in Cardiff, with a helicopter urging everyone out of the water over a PA. While we are waiting for more info from the area news, check out this list of fatal shark attacks in the US and these accounts of white shark attacks in La Jolla Cove.
