The hunt is on for a two-metre shark - thought to be a Great White - after it killed a 50-year-old local man who was swimming at Clarke's Beach in Australia's noted Byron Bay. Police with helicopters have sighted what may prove to be the killer shark but say that it might not be culled if it is found to be a protected Great White. Byron Bay is considered to be a safe beach with the last attack taking place in 1995. A second man went to the aid of the swimmer to drag him clear and onto the beach. Despite carrying out CPR the man died at the scene. His wife was on the beach at the time and in a highly distressed state according to reports.   http://www.theguardian.com/world/2014/sep/09/man-killed-in-shark-attack-at-byron-bay
