SYDNEY: A diver was killed by a shark on Saturday while hunting scallops off the coast of Australia as his daughter watched helplessly, shocking locals in an area not known for such attacks. The deadly incident happened off Maria Island in the southern island state of Tasmania following sightings of a large great white shark in the vicinity over recent days. The man, in his late 40s, was diving with his daughter when he failed to resurface. According to Sydney Taronga Zoo’s Australian Shark Attack file, the last fatal shark attack in Tasmania was in 1993, when a woman was killed while scuba diving near a seal colony off the state’s north coast.
