Another bodyboarder has been killed off Reunion Island. According to reports, Adrien Dubosc was bodyboarding around 11 am at Pointe au Sal in Saint-Leu on April 29th when a shark mauled his leg. He died from his injuries.
Surfing and bodyboarding are banned in the area, and the attack comes just a few months after Dubosc’s friend, 26-year-old Alexandre Naussac, died at a nearby beach where bodyboarding was also prohibited. Naussac’s death prompted more outrage from a stunned and angry surfing community, including Jeremy Flores, Kelly Slater, and Michel Bourez.
