1. Randy Fry

Tripline

In 2004, Fry and his buddy were diving off the coast of California when disaster stuck. As Fry was swimming, the shark charged at him. According to his friend, Cliff Zimmerman, the shark “came out of nowhere and just grabbed him.” Fry’s body was discovered a day later with his head removed from his torso.

Terry Manuel

Telegraph

In 1974, Manuel was diving off the cost of South Australia. As he was finished with his afternoon diving, a giant great white shark struck him at 25 MPH. Manuel’s boat-mate, Talbot, managed to grab Manuel’s arm and eventually pulled him into the boat. Sadly, Manuel bled to death before help arrived.

Todd Endris

National Geographic

This is the only one of two stories on this list that has a happy ending. In 2007, Todd Endris was surfing when a great white shark approached him and nearly ripped his skin off his back. As this was happening, a pod of dolphins came to the aid of Endris and forced the shark to swim away. It is believed that Endris survived by a miracle.

5. USS Indianapolis

Wikipedia

On July 30, 1945, the USS Indianapolis was struck by two type 95 torpedoes from a Japanese submarine causing the ship to sink. Of the 1,196 aboard, 300 went down with the ship. The Navy had no knowledge of the sinking and the surviving men spent three and a half days in the water. By time rescuers arrived, only 317 would ultimately survive, as the rest died from exposure, salt poisoning, thirst, and – horribly – sharks, particularly the oceanic whitetip shark and tiger sharks, according to Wikipedia.

8. La Seyne

Sharkfacts

The oldest shark attack and most deadly on this list happened in 1909. The French liner, Le Seyne, collided with a British India Steam Navigation ship called Onda. Due to thick fog, the boats couldn’t see each other. As the ship sank, hundreds of sharks were waiting below. It is estimated that 100 people were eaten by the sharks.

Google

In 1984, two diving partners were off the coast of Santa Cruz. As Omar Conger was going up to the surface, he was attacked by a 16-foot great white. The shark violently shook him back and forth and eventually Conger was dragged underwater. His diving partner, Chris Rehm, was being targeted next and the shark let Conger out of his mouth. Rehm escaped and tried to call for help, but his partner had already died
