Tiger Shark Attacks Kayaker
Sunshine Coast kayaker Kyle Roberts narrowly escapes tiger shark attack
Posted on 15.11.2018
ABC News reported today that a Sunshine Coast kayaker, Kyle Roberts, was attacked off Moffat beach by a 4 metre tiger shark.
Surf Life Saving Queensland duty officer David McLean said Mr Roberts was in shock when lifeguards reached him on jet skis.
“There was no blood in the water — nothing else to attract any sharks — just came out of the blue, completely broadsided him, and as he stated, he’s very lucky to be here,” Mr McLean said.
Key points noted in the story are:
- Kyle Roberts was paddling about a kilometre off Moffat Beach and was knocked into the air by the shark
- The shark punctured the kayak but Mr Roberts hung on as the shark continued to circle
- The kayaker, who lives on the Sunshine Coast, was shaken but not injured
