Accident → Shark attack

All those males were attacked by the great white shark.

The great white shark (Carcharodon carcharias) is an exceptionally large shark found in coastal surface waters in all major oceans. In 2000, there were 79 shark attacks reported worldwide, 11 of them fatal. In 2005 and 2006 this number dropped to 61 and 62 respectively, while the number of fatalities dropped to only four per year. Of these attacks, the majority occurred in the United States (53 in 2000, 40 in 2005 and 38 in 2006). Humans, in any case, are not healthy for great white sharks to eat because the sharks' digestion is too slow to cope with the human body's high ratio of bone to muscle and fat. Accordingly, in most recorded attacks, great whites have broken off contact after the first bite. Fatalities are usually caused by loss of blood from the initial limb injury rather than from critical organ loss or from whole consumption.

Disagree with you Macenzie, you cannot say that there has never been a rouge shark. There are been many theories of rouge sharks (Jersey Shore 1916). Rouge sharks have not been proven or disproven to exist, so to say there has never been one is incorrect.
