Daughter sees shark attack father off Tasmanian Island
A horrific shark attack off the Tasmanian coast of Australia. A man and his daughter were diving for scallops early Saturday morning near Maria Island. When her father didn’t return to the surface after a dive.
An official told reporters she went down and saw a large shark attacking her father.
She returned to the surface herself and shot off an emergency flare.
But her father did not survive.
A local conservation society says there’s only been one other fatal, unprovoked shark attack in the last 100 years in Tasmania.
