First fatal attack of 2014

The first fatal attack of 2014 took place today off Yorke peninsula, west of the South Australia state capital of Adelaide.

Sam Kellett was killed by a shark while practicing for a spearfishing tournament.


Witnesses reported seeing Mr. Kellett thrashing about in the water after a suspected great white shark approached. The whole body of the shark had come out of the water.

The 28-year-olds body was not found. However, his speargun and diving weight, which had teeth marks on them, were recovered.

Sightings of a great white had been reported in the area a week prior to the tragedy.
