Witnessing a Horrifying Event

At approximately 12.30pm today my family I were sitting on the beach at Shell Bay at the entrance to Poole Harbour in Dorset.

The tranquillity of the day was horrifyingly shattered when a young family, returning from a fishing trip in their small boat, were attacked by a shark.

It appeared suddenly and without warning. Many people didn't notice the drama unfolding as the Shark slowly but inexorably closed the distance between itself and the small rubber boat. It's deadly, silvery body seemed to glide on top of the water as it closed in on it's prey.

The children screamed as they turned and saw it just inches from them.

This tragic and horrifying event stands as a reminder to us all of the terrible risks and tragic consequences that sometimes befall our nation's brave fisherpeople.
