I've lived in San Diego all my life (born here), and I've surfed and dived just about the whole coast at one time or another. Only once have I heard of someone dying from a shark attack at La Jolla, and even then it was thought to be a stunt to collect insurance money...a body was never recovered. To hear that a shark actually attacked someone along our coast is truly amazing, but I know that in the back of my mind it's always a possibility. The more dangerous sharks are farther out away from the coast, because that's where their food source is, and close in to shore there are the harmless sharks...seen them many times. This person has to be one of the most unlucky people alive, because I'll bet that won't happen again in decades.
