An Australian Bodyboarder Dies After Getting His Legs Ripped Off By A Shark

So, how was your Labor Day Weekend? Not bad, eh? Couple dogs, few brewskis, no work—life couldn't be better! Tell that to this guy. On Sunday, an Australian man named Kyle James Burden went bodyboarding at a popular surfing spot called The Farm near the town of Dunsborough with a group of five other bodyboarders. It was going well, too, until a shark swam into the area, bit both of the man's legs off, and then swam away from the scene, where the man was later pronounced dead. A line directly from the AP report: "Authorities were searching for the shark as well as the man's missing limbs."

OUCH! Don't expect us to go anywhere near the water for the rest of the summer. [via The Big Lead]
