Shark attack compilation: Stuart Beach in Martin County, Florida, ranks high on “most dangerous” lists thanks to well-known shark attacks.

Stuart Beach last made headlines six years ago when 38-year-old kite surfer Stephen Howard Schafer suffered multiple bite wounds and died. Schafer was about 500 yards offshore when he was attacked.

He had gone kite surfing later in the day. Lifeguard Daniel Lund was looking through his binoculars when he noticed something strange.

Lund saw Schafer lying on his kite board’s large sail. The lifeguard’s training took over … he sprang into action. Paddling out to the kitesurfer, Lund noticed blood in the water. Schafer screamed he had been attacked by a shark.

Lund pulled Schafer onto his board and paddled back as several of the predators circled. Despite Lund’s heroic efforts, paramedics could not save the kitesurfer.

Schafer suffered two shark bites: one to the buttocks and one to the right thigh. Medics found a shark tooth lodged into the victim’s femur. Investigators believe an injury to the right hand was a defensive wound, possibly obtained when Schafer tried to fight off the shark.

At first, investigators believed multiple sharks attacked the kite surfer. But after closer examination, investigators concluded. The bites, 9 to 10 inches in diameter, most likely came from one shark.

Experts think either a bull shark and tiger shark to be responsible for the attack.
