Sydney beaches close after first fatal shark attack in nearly 60 years

SYDNEY:Several Sydney sea shores, including the famous Bondi and Bronte, were closed down on Thursday after a swimmer was killed in a shark assault, the main such casualty at the city's sea shores in almost 60 years. Drum lines, which are utilized to snare sharks, have been set up close to the assault site while drones have been conveyed as authorities look for assuming that the shark is as yet nearby.


A video shared online showed a shark assaulting an individual on Wednesday evening off Little Bay ocean side, around 20 km south of Australia's biggest city and close to the entry to Botany Bay. Police have not yet unveiled the character of the swimmer. A representative for the New South Wales division of essential enterprises said its shark scholars trust that a white shark somewhere around 9. 8 feet long was liable for the assault.


It was the principal deadly shark assault in Sydney beginning around 1963, information showed. The lethal assault comes only days before Australia resumes to worldwide sightseers on February 21. The country's sandy sea shores, including Bondi, are regularly highlighted in publicizing efforts to bait sightseers from the opposite side of the world.
