A swimmer was brutally killed by a great white shark as he was trying to come back to shore from deep waters. A video is circulating on social media where the man is seen swimming for his life, but he doesn’t make it. The shark caught him and ate him alive.

According to some media reports, police said they recovered human remains in the water after emergency crews responded to reports of a great white shark attack at Buchan Point in Malabar. The incident happened at around 4:30 in the afternoon.

The attack was reportedly the first shark death in Sydney since 1963. Kris Linto, a witness who watched as the beast attacked the man trying to escape, told the media that the shark attacked the swimmer “vertically.”

“We heard a scream and turned around, it looked like a car had landed in the water, a big splash, then the shark was biting the body and there was blood everywhere. It was really bad,” he added.

The mayor of the Sydney suburb of Randwick, Dylan Parker, said the community was shocked: “The coast is the backyard of our community. Little Bay is normally such a peaceful and beautiful place, enjoyed by families. Losing someone to a shark like this is disturbing. We are all in shock.”

Another witness said he was fishing when he saw a man wearing a wetsuit swimming across the bay before the horrific attack. “He was screaming at first, and then when he went down, there was a lot of splashing,” the man said to the media. “It was terrible. I’m shaking. I keep throwing up. It’s very, very disturbing.” TO SEE THE VIDEO CLICK HERE . Filed Under: Shark Eats Swimmer Alive

It is worth mentioning that on Wednesday night, a rescue helicopter continued to fly over the area. Search teams put a green colorant in the water to find out which way the currents were moving as they tried to find more remains.

The Department for Primary Industries (DPI) said “smart” drums could be deployed in the area to monitor and capture any sharks, which would then be relocated away from the shore. “We will continue to work with NSW Police and Surf Life Saving NSW to monitor the area and provide technical advice and resources if needed,” a spokesperson said.
