Lots of death in travel - 2012's first shark fatality

I don't know if I'm hosting a travel blog here or if I'm working for a travel morgue.  With the death toll at 11 on the cruise ship and 20-something still missing it's a sad ocean related tragic.  

(a typical beach in Eastern Cape Province, South Africa)

Also a sad ocean related tragedy, a 25 year old man was swimming in the waters off South Africa this week when a shark attacked him.  The young man later died of his multiple injuries.  :-(   He was standing in a group in waist deep water when the shark got him on the legs, arms and torso.  

Sick Bonus fact:  14 people died in 2011 from global shark attacks.
