Shark Attack

Los Angeles

Information

Matthew Garcia was bodyboarding mid-day on October 23, 2010 when he was attacked by a great white shark. The attack was located just north of the shore of Santa Barbara. The shark attacked Garcia's leg and drug him down in a cloud of blood. Matthew Garcia was killed during the attack. A nearby lifeguard tried to recessitate him, but he was already dead from major flesh wounds and loss of blood. If he had only known the beach better, maybe he would've thought twice of entering the water when the tied was so high. Experts say that is the perfect time for a great white to come closer to shore and attack out of suspicion.
