There were two other Great Whites off the Treasure Coast the other day. Spear fisherman scared one off with his spear and caught video:
Who knows what's out there. I go to the beach a lot, but usually only go in the water if I have to take a leak.

Kind of like jumping out of a perfectly good plane.:0)

You are right, to a point. This could have
been avoided by staying out of the water.
Duh, we all know that. A car accident could be avoided by never getting into a car, or even a bus. Those who never cook won't ever burn a dinner. The list is endless.
I'm very sorry for the woman's attack. It is horrifying, so I guess we should stick to the swimming pools. Our choice.

I once got a Hell of an infection simply from dipping my head in a pool on a hot day.
This could have been avoided had I not dipped my head in said pool! There is danger all around us it seems.
To this day I do not go in public pools at all...but I do go into the Gulf of Mexico :D

I went to college in Melbourne and used to go swimming at Melbourne Beach and Indian Harbour all the time. Guess I was lucky!
Try this. Fly south from Cape Canaveral at 300 feet, and about 200 feet from the beach. Observe the number of dark shadows cruising below the surface. These, my friends, are sharks looking for food.
