(Newser) – A 39-year-old California man was killed by a massive shark bite to the torso while surfing off the coast of Vandenberg Air Force Base yesterday. Fellow surfers pulled the man to shore and tried to administer CPR but he was pronounced dead at the scene, the Los Angeles Times reports. His surfboard had visible shark bites and experts say it looks like a great white shark attack. Almost exactly two years ago, a shark killed a 19-year-old surfer off the same beach.
