This isn't funny, but it is amazing how shocked everyone gets when a wild animal attacks a human. Well lets see....Shark lives in the ocean and is the ultimate predator...man swims in ocean, he is at the bottom of the oceans food chain. Whether a human is in their environment or take the wild animal out of their natural habit, you can't predict an animals behavior 100% of the time. Hense the name " Wild Animal".
Here is the news report:
A man 55 to 60 years old was swimming with others at Tide Beach about 7 a.m. when he was attacked, according to a statement on the Solana Beach city website.
The man, whose identity was not immediately released, was taken to the Fletcher Cove Park lifeguard station for emergency treatment but was pronounced dead at the scene, the statement said.
Swimmers were ordered out of the water along a 17-mile stretch around the attack site, and the San Diego County Sheriff's Department sent up helicopters to scan the waters for the shark.
"The shark is still in the area. We're sure of that," Solana Beach Mayor Joe Kellejian told the Associated Press.
Times staffers are on the story, so more details are to come.
