Shark Attack Tips
There were only 61 confirmed unprovoked attacks by sharks on humans worldwide in 2004, according to the International Shark Attack File (ISAF). Only seven people people died: including two in Australia and one each in California, Hawaii, South Africa, and Brazil. (The location of the remaining fatality was not specified.)
OW TO AVOID AN ATTACK
• Stay away from the mouths of rivers after heavy rains, when freshwater fishes and other animals are swept out to sea.
