A 37-year-old tourist in Cape Town was the victim of a vicious shark attack earlier today, and one of the first witnesses was a nearby resident who saw the killing from his house and tweeted it. “Holy shit,” he wrote, “we just saw a GIGANTIC shark eat what looked like a person right in front of our house in [Fish Hoek Beach]. Unbelievable.” He described the creature as “huge. Like dinosaur huge… longer than a mini-bus.” Other witnesses saw the 4-meter shark go after the victim three times before he was dragged underwater. Tragic as it is, could this be the first (and perhaps most horrifying?) shark attack ever tweeted?
