1992/04/24 Mike Fraser - New Zealand - Campbell Island

Mike became the holder of a most dubious honour, namely being the most southerly ever recorded shark attack victim.


I really doubt Mike Fraser will forget the 24 April 1992. It was the day Mike became the holder of a most dubious honour, namely being the most southerly ever recorded shark attack victim. The fact a shark attack could occur at Campbell Island seemed strange. Campbell Island is located about 700km south of the New ...

Kevin Morrison, a 16-year-old from Rockford, Illinois, received a hearty spring-break welcome from local fauna while scuba diving with his father off the Keys near Marathon.
