Since San Diego is the Bay Area's quiet sister down south, and seeing as how our coastline has seen its fair share of large fish attacks, we thought we should mention what happened today. Dave Martin, 66, a retired veterinarian (ironically) and a member of a triathlon club was killed by a great white shark in Solana Beach, 150 yards offshore.
Ranging anywhere from 12 feet to 17 feet long, the shark went after Martin a little after 7 a.m. while he and fellow athletes were training. According to the Gate, witnesses "saw him come up out of the water, scream 'shark,' flail his arms and go back under. Fellow club members dragged him back to shore, but due to the "single bite across both of [his] legs," he bled to death before he could reach a hospital.
Stay safe in the water, people.
