“A Shark bite is only one of many possible endings to a Shark Attack”
“An UNPROVOKED Shark Attack is only one of many types of Shark Attack”

When you see the words Unprovoked or Bite associated with Shark Attacks, someone is trying to hide shark dangers you may face should you enter the water. In most cases, the word unprovoked equals the number of incidents shared with the public. Any other type of Shark Attack is kept a secret from the public.

John Hornback shark attack Belize shark attacks

A diver had a lucky escape when a shark suddenly attacked his GoPro camera.

The beast nearly nearly made off with the gadget as John Hornback filmed during a dive off the coast of Belize.

The underwater camera captured the moment the predator lashed out, revealing its powerful jaws millimetres from the lens.

The footage initially shows another diver with a dead fish on the end of a spear, which apparently interests the shark.

But as the animal examines the bait and circles the divers slowly, it suddenly changes direction and ploughs towards the diver filming the scene.

The screen briefly goes completely black as the shark's jaws envelop the camera, before it quickly swims off.

It then examines a number of other divers at close range before other sharks appear on the scene.

John posted the footage on Facebook, accompanied by the message: "Diving with sharks can be hazardous... to your GoPro!"

He captured the video during a dive off Half Moon Caye in Belize over the Christmas period.

The camera, which continued filming after the incident, was apparently not too badly harmed.

A simple explanation of the word unprovoked is chosen to be shared. Each year shark attack researchers choose certain shark attacks they share with the public. The ISAF website states, “All of the data publically available on the ISAF website is from unprovoked incidents.” Ocean users, beware that the ISAF has 6800 incidents on file, with only 3292, or 47%, being chosen to be shared with the public. In 2019 they chose 45%, and in 2020 they only chose 44% of the investigated incidents.
