Last shark attack in the Georges was 1946 -

GIRL KILLED

BY SHARK IN

GEORGE'S RIVER

SYDNEY, Sunday.

Valma Tegel, 14, of Russell St.,

Oatley Bay, George's River, was

killed by an 8ft. shark in three feet

of Water at Oatley Bay, yesterday

afternoon.

The girl had been swimming with

her father, Walter Tegel, and her

cousin, Barbara Walther, 13, at

small beach near her home.

She was horribly mauled, and died

a few minutes after being taken from

the water by her father.

The girl's father fought the shark

with his feet and fists, and forced it

to release her.

Tegel and the two girls had been

swimming in shallow water for about

25 minutes when the shark attacked.

Two Sharks Sighted

Two sharks were sighted to-day in

Oatley Bay, George's River, near the

spot where Valma Tegel was killed.

Despite a desperate and courageous

effort by her father, Rudolph Tegel,

who straddled the shark and fought

it with his bare fists, the girl was

horribly mauled, losing her left leg,

and she died in her father's arms as

he was carrying her from the water.

Only a matter of time now that the commercial guys are gone and the fish are returning....

merro nice story and same would be for the harbour, probably been a while since someone has been killed.

I was referring to, in my joke, a story a few years back where someone caught a bull shark in a prawn net, or i think caught it fishing... not too sure.
