Teenage girl, 16, mauled to death by a shark s is identified, Swan River, WA
A girl, 16, who was mauled to death by a shark in front of her friends has been identified as Stella Berry.
The teenager, who was a student at Shenton College in Perth, was jet skiing with her friends in the Swan River in North Fremantle, Western Australia, at about 3.30pm on Saturday when she saw a pod of dolphins.
Emergency services try and save her life but her injuries were too severe and she died at the scene.
Perth local, Joshua Banks, 16, was rope swinging with six friends nearby before the gruesome attack unfolded.
‘Me and my mates Jacob and Harry saw them – we actually watched them pass through the bridge as we (were) rope swinging,’ he told The Daily Telegraph.
‘They passed and we saw them get off the jet skis near the beach and jump off and swim to the shore quickly.’
The teen described what he saw as a ‘completely random attack’ and said he and his friends were left ‘shaken’ by the event.
‘We were completely unaware of this attack and had been swimming and jumping off for about an hour to 45 minutes,’ he said.
