MANRESA STATE BEACH (USA)- Last weekend a 26-year old surfer was killed in a shark attack at Manresa State Beach south of Aptos, in Santa Cruz County, in the northern part of the Monterey Bay.
The man died on the beach while bystanders performed cpr on him. The type of shark species that attacked the victim is unknown, but chances are it was a great white. Earlier dozens of great whites were spotted by a drone off Seacliffs State Beach, a few days earlier.
Following State Parks protocol, the water one mile south and north of the incident location will be closed until Thursday, May 14, 2020. Signs warning beachgoers about the shark attack are now posted on access points and beach entrances within a one-mile radius of the incident.
