Lifeguard Killed In SA Shark Attack

As reported by The Sun.

A YOUNG lifeguard disappeared in a “pool of blood” in the fourth shark attack at a South African beach in two years.

Witnesses said the 22-year-old waved his hands frantically in the air before being dragged under by a shark after paddling on a surf board off the coast of Port St Johns in the Eastern Cape.

John Costello at the National Sea Rescue Institute (NSRI ) said the board later washed up on the shore but there were no signs of the unnamed lifeguard.

He said: “The witness said before he disappeared he threw his hands up in the air and was pulled down and a pool of blood was left.”
