Csanestri dies after being attacked by a shark off the coast of the French-ruled island of Reunion near Madagascar in the Indian Ocean. Spokesman:
Elio Canestri was surfing with seven others off the west coast of the island on Sunday morning when a Bulldog shark attacked. The shark sunk its teeth into the teen’s stomach and flung him around the water as he prepared to mount a wave. A boat was launched very quickly, and the victim was dragged out of the sea, but he died from his wounds. Those who witnessed the attack, including other children, are being treated for trauma.
