Shark attack skipper witnesses a nightmare

A diver is assumed dead after being attacked by two great white sharks off South Australia.

A skipper who watched his friend and colleague die in the jaws of two sharks in South Australia yesterday had broken his own vow never to return to the sea.

The skipper became famous across his native country after a miraculous escape from a capsized boat in November 2000 in which he swam nearly nine miles to shore and crawled through a swamp to find help.
