While fishing in the surf on a beach in Mozambique, a fisherman was horrified when he realized the swirling water 16 feet away was his friend being attacked by a shark.
News24 reported that it was the second fatal shark attack in a month off the coast of southern Mozambique.
Muendane could only watch helplessly as his friend was savagely bitten in the abdomen and legs. Julio did not survive the injuries.
Muendane, in shock, told O Pais it would be difficult for him to return to his work as a fisherman after what he witnessed but would have to since he has not alternative.
News24 reported that fishermen killed nine sharks in the Coconut Bay area of Inhambane last November in an attempt to kill a shark that had attacked three people. Bull sharks, tiger sharks and hammerhead sharks were among those killed.
Albino Ernest, 19, was the third of those victims. He was pulling up shrimp nets when a shark knocked him off his feet and nearly severed both his arms when it bit him as he struggled with the nets. Doctors were forced to amputate the arms, according to TrackingSharks.
