|Fisherman's remains found in tiger shark
Police identify skull and other body parts as those of missing angler
Associated Press April 24, 2002
SYDNEY, Australia Human remains found inside a huge tiger shark caught off Australia's eastern coast belong to a missing fisherman, police said Wednesday.
A skull, arm and pelvis were found Sunday when fishermen cut open the 10-foot-long shark after catching it in waters about 60 miles north of Sydney.
Police said the remains inside the 815-pound shark were those of 52-year-old Kang Suk Lee, from Sydney.
Lee was washed into the sea while fishing from rocks near Port Kembla, about 90 miles south of Sydney, on April 2.
Shreds of clothing in the shark matched clothing Lee was wearing when he was swept off rocks, police said.
An autopsy on Tuesday revealed the victim had probably drowned before he was eaten by the shark.
Fatal shark attacks are rare in Australia. Last year three swimmers were bitten by sharks, but all survived.
The last recorded fatal attacks in Australia were in 2000, when there were three.

|...One day you got the glory and then you got none
One day you're a diamond and then you're a stone
Everything can change in the blink of an eye
So let the good times roll before we say goodbye because
Sometimes you're the windshield
Sometimes you're the bug

|It seems pretty incredible, that with only three body parts found that they can determine that he drowned.
Maybe they thought this would sound nicer for the family. Although the outcome is horrible either way, drowning sure sounds nicer.
