Shark Kills Texas Man In Australia

Last updated on Tuesday, October 25, 2011

(AUSTRALIA)(NBC) - 32-year-old Thomas Wainwright, of Texas, was killed off the coast of Sydney, Australia over the weekend in an apparent shark attack.

Wainwright was work in ocean engineering. This is the third attack in Australia this year in the same area.

Authorities have ordered fisheries officers to hunt and kill a rogue Great White.

Scientists say it is more likely there were three separate sharks, all trailing the whales that are now migrating through the area.
