Man killed by shark near Vandenberg Air Force Base
October 23, 2012
A friend of the victim witnessed the attack, pulled the badly injured man to shore and called for help.
Emergency crews arrived and performed CPR, but shortly afterwards, the Santa Barbara County coroner’s vehicle arrived at the scene.
Even though Ocean Beach is located on the base, it is open to the public. The victim is not believed to be affiliated with the base.
On Oct. 22, 2010, a great white shark attacked a 19-year-old who was boogie boarding in the same area. Though his friends pulled him to the beach, he also died at the scene.
