Date: 1/7/2012

A 33-year-old diver was killed by a shark off Stratham Beach in southwestern Australia in the region’s fourth shark-related fatality in six months. Peter Kurmann appeared to be killed instantly while his brother, Gian, was not hurt. The death happened one day after fishery managers adopted new protections for sharks in the western and central Pacific Ocean.
