Texas diver killed by great white in Australia

The family of George Thomas Wainwright, who was killed last weekend by a great white shark off the southwest coast of Australia, is mourning for the man who was "passionate about life and his hobbies" as hunters mobilize in the area to hunt suspected man-eating rogue sharks.

Wainwright, 32, was attacked Saturday while diving solo off a boat near Rottnest Island, a few miles from the city of Perth in Western Australia state. It was the third fatal attack on a human by a shark in these waters in recent weeks.
