19.09.2016

Last weekend became a real nightmare for US surfers. On Sunday, three surfers were victims of shark attacks. All three incidents occurred on the Florida beaches near the town of New Smyrna Beach. The message was already commented by the rescuers. According to them, such incidents are atypical for the area and occur no more than one or two times a year. Currently great weather is perfect for surfing in Florida. Therefore, despite the warning signs placed on all beaches, thousands of tourists with boards are in a hurry to catch the wave.

Sharks –°onfused Fish with Tourists in Florida

The first victim was a 43-year-old man, whose leg was bitten by a predator. Half an hour later, a 36-year-old Miami resident was bitten in both hands. And just in a couple of hours a 16-year-old teenager was attacked. Two were hospitalized, but the young man refused from the hospitalization. Such high concentration of sharks near the beaches in Florida has already found the explanation. In fact, predatory fish do not want to eat vacationers, just now in the coastal waters of the state a lot of small fish is accumulated. And the sharks, to provide food, may accidentally catch the tourist in the excitement of hunting.
