February 17, 2022 - as autoridades de Sidney buscan a un gran tiburón blanco que mató a
un instructor de buceo, el primer ataque letal en la ciudad en casi 60 años

A 35-year-old certified diving instructor from Sydney has been named as the victim of a fatal shark attack off the city’s coast.

Simon Nellist from Wolli Creek was swimming at Little Bay when he was attacked just after 4.30pm (local time) on Wednesday.

Witness testimony of the shark’s size and and behaviour points to it being a great white shark – likely 4-5 metres long. In the frenzied attack, Nellis received catastrophic injuries, with some of his remains found in Little Bay shortly afterwards.

It is Sydney’s first fatal shark attack since 1963, when actor Marcia Hathaway was savaged by a bull shark at Sugarloaf Bay, in Middle Harbour.

Beaches from Bondi to Cronulla remain closed until further notice, while the hunt for the shark continues.
