Stuart Beach Florida: Surfer Dies of Shark Attack


We already heard a story of a girl who survived after being attacked by a shark. Sadly, this time a man died.

Yesterday in Stuart Beach, Florida, a surfer, 38 years old, was surrounded and fatally by several sharks. The surfer named Stephen Howard Schafer died at the hospital from his wounds.

Experts say the attack may be done by young great white sharks. Surfers sometimes get minor bites by sharks, but fatal attacks are rare.

A newspaper reported,”They eat their way through a migrating parade of 3- to 4-foot sharpnose sharks that travel south from New England waters to Florida,” reports the newspaper.

This is the second time for Stuart beach Florida got shark attack after a fatal one in 2005.
