Dominican diver killed in rare shark attack


A young man who was diving in the zone Las Malenas near this resort town was devoured by a shark Monday morning, according to the Police and the Navy.

The victim of the rare attack, Pedrito Pinales, 21, was found completely mutilated by a Navy patrol boat floating in the Caribbean, in front of the beach.

He was known as a competent diver and resided 47 kilometers east of Santo Domingo on the Easter Motorway, in the rural area Las Malenas, said the authorities.

Pinales’ colleagues said they had warned him several times on the presence of sharks in that zone, but ignored them arguing that he wasn’t afraid of them.
