Any news on diver attacked by shark?
 
I'm local out of state marks area and there was a diver that went down about two weeks ago now the people who were in the boat are saying a 12+ tiger attacked him and he went down they never saw him again. Fwc just recently discovered his dive gear on the rotary reef with shark bites all in it so I've heard. Wow dering if anyone else has heard the same stuff or it's rumors or what

It's local right now no news stories on it I guess but long story short a dive cam up struggling then went back down and nobody found him and the witnesses in the boat said there was a 12+ tiger attacking him

It was probably just a sea creature that attacked him and not a shark. This would keep the news people at bay and keep powerhead sales down.:D
Seriously, how could this not be news worthy?

Wow scary stuff. Shark shield seems like quite a deal at $700

Seriously, no offense, but I can't imagine a wetsuit would deter an aggressive shark from ambushing you.

Sorry,

Just my sense of humor. I was kidding. :)

Nothing is going to stop one if he is really serious.

I kinda think that if that happened it would be in the news

True story, The FWC said the coast guard dove the next day and found parts and pieces of dive gear with obvious shark markings. They said the entire time they were down about a 10-13ft tiger shark was there. I was fishing that day he went missing and heard the call to the coast guard on a missing diver. He was a friend of my buddy's in Tallahassee.

Can you tell me Exactly where this happened and what depth? I had a hammerhead hang around us out of Crystal River, about 40' depth. Glad I had my Freedom 7. Followed my dive buddy to surface. :mad::D
