After posting about sharks yesterday I stumbled upon a remarkable and tragic story containing humans and sharks, which occurred just last week.

Three men left on a ill-fated fishing trip on the night of August 9th off the coast of Western Australia. Then tragedy struck.

Two of the men were pulled from shark infested waters, one found naked after treading water for 20 hours. The other man was later pronounced dead. The third, the nephew of the (so far) lone survivor, is still missing.
