A Bodyboarder Dies In Fatal Shark Attack On Reunion Island

A bodyboarder bled to death on a beach after being mauled by a shark in front of shocked holidaymakers on a paradise island. The 26-year-old man was fatally wounded on the French island of Reunion as local officials claim signs warning of the dangers of shark attacks had recently been vandalised.

Horrified swimmers saw the man attacked as he bodyboarded in shallow waters in the Indian Ocean. The man was the eight person killed by a shark in the Indian Ocean in the last six years and 12 more have been injured.
