Male surfer, 31, killed in apparent Great White shark attack at California beach
The identity of the deceased man was not immediately disclosed by the officials of San Luis Obispo County Coroner
Sharks are one of the most dangerous kinds of fish that are considered a kind of elasmobranch fish. Unlike all the other fish, these are very dangerous and can even kill a human being. An incident took place in America. A male surfer lost his life as he was killed in a shark attack in Morro Bay, California.
After the incident happened, there was a buzz created everywhere on social media. The officials confirmed the news, and the state parks representatives are currently at the scene to complete the investigation of the mishappening and dangerous incident that took place.
The Morro Bay Harbor confirmed the news of the surfer killed in a shark attack on Christmas eve. The Harbor department laid a statement saying, "Harbor, Police and Fire Departments responded to a report of a male victim unresponsive on the beach after he was pulled from the water suffering from an apparent shark attack." As per the reports of San Luis Obispo Tribue, the Morro Bay Harbor Department notified that the popular surfing spot was closed due to shark attack visitors by posting a sign at the beach on Friday
When did this happen?
Officials discovered the male surfer at 10.40 am on the Morro Bay State Park beach in California. As per the reports of the Harbor Director Eric Endersby, 15 miles west from the San Luis Obispo, Morro Bay is located where this incident and death of the surfer took place. It is reported that the victim was dead at the scene. In June, a 35-year-old also faced a non-fatal shark attack. According to the reports the man was bitten in the right leg but was able to win shore.
Who was killed in the Shark attack?
The surfer who was killed in the shark attack is not yet identified by the officials of San Luis Obispo County Coroner. The identity of the 31-year-old man who was killed in the shark attack was not immediately disclosed.
Meanwhile, the beaches in Morro Bay and State Parks will be currently open and will remain open until any further notice. However, the authorities have given orders and guidelines for the beachgoers and surfers to stay out of the water for the next 24 hours.
According to the responding officers, the shark bite, which a coroner will measure, was similar to the Great White shark. Morro Bay Harbor Patrol Director Eric Endersby informed a news channel that a woman surfing nearby saw a boogie board with someone face down in the water and an unresponsive state of motion. The woman tried to bring the surfer to the shore.
Earlier this year, only three non-fatal shark attacks occurred in California before this one.
