ViveBene,

Thanks for posting this news.

According to the International Shark Attack File (to which this attack will very soon surely be added) yours odds of being fatally attacked by a shark in US waters is 1 in 264.1 million.

However, swimming/diving with baited sharks drastically increases these odds....

I clicked on the link and read the story. While a tragic thing and I'm not happy about it, I did get quite the chuckle out of the posts that people put at the end!
