Ghosts & the Supernatural – Sharks are the serial killers of the ocean. They are real predatory monsters, they will eat almost anything. They will not hesitate to take a human life if needed. Below are just a few examples of the killing frenzy of sharks although shark attacks are very well documented they do not happen all that often. However, these are the people that met their fate via sharks.
Richard A. Snead, 60 years old, died while swimming in the Atlantic Ocean at twilight off the beach in the Whale Head Bay area of Corolla, North Carolina, near mile post 4½. His body was found washed up on the beach in Kill Devil Hills, North Carolina. Final autopsy results, released on January 5, 2010, concluded Snead’s death appeared to be from drowning. This conclusion conflicted, however, with an initial autopsy conducted at East Carolina University which said he died of shark bites. Date of Incident: September 12, 2009. Type of Shark: Unknown.
David Roger Martin, age 66 was killed at approximately 7:20 a.m. while swimming with a group of eight other triathletes off a beach in Solana Beach, California. The victim was bitten across both thighs. Date of Incident: April 25, 2008. Type of Shark: Great White Shark.
Jamie Marie Daigle, age 14 was killed while swimming with a friend on boogie boards about 200 yards (180 m) off a beach in Walton County, Florida, 8 miles (13 km) east of Destin, Florida. Witnesses estimated the shark was 6–8 feet (1.8–2.4 m) long. Date of Incident: June 25, 2005. Type of Shark: Bull Shark.
Randy Fry, age 50 was killed while diving for abalone with a friend in 15–20 feet (4.6–6.1 m) of water 150 feet (46 m) from shore off Mendocino, California, near Kibesillah Rock. His headless body was recovered the next day. His head washed ashore 2 miles (3.2 km) north on September 3. The bite radius was 18 inches (46 cm), allowing experts to extrapolate the shark was 16–18 feet (4.9–5.5 m) long. Date of Incident: August 15, 2004. Type of Shark: Great White Shark.
Besides the people that meet their demise by shark, there are those beautiful loving creatures of the ocean that also meet their fate by shark. Here is an example. I will always remember Snuffy the Seal. (This is just a commercial and is not real so do not cry)
“The Flying Dutchman is a legendary ghost ship that can never make port, doomed to sail the oceans forever. The myth is likely to have originated from 17th-century nautical folklore. The oldest extant version dates to the late 18th century. Sightings in the 19th and 20th centuries reported the ship to be glowing with ghostly light. If hailed by another ship, the crew of the Flying Dutchman will try to send messages to land, or to people long dead. In ocean lore, the sight of this phantom ship is a portent of doom.”
So as you can see, if you come across The Flying Dutchman, you are cursed, you are doomed, because this ghostly ship is a ‘harbinger of doom’. In 1968, Captain Steve Miles and 2 of his friends (passengers) were deep sea fishing for rock cod out in the Pacific Ocean (outside of San Francisco). The Flying Dutchman is usually seen near and around the Cape of Good Hope – Southern Africa, the Atlantic Ocean, Bermuda Triangle, some sightings occurred off the coast of Venezuela and even Chile.
A sighting of The Flying Dutchman in the Pacific Ocean is a rarity. Out from the thick fog, Steve and his friends saw what appeared to be a 17th Century ship. The ship was translucent. They could see through parts of the ship, as if they had X-ray vision. Steve’s friend Leslie Micklog exclaimed: “My god, the Flying Dutchman?” For a period of 7 minutes, the 3 fisherman saw this ghostly ship and then it seemed to fade away, to vanish from sight. The billowing fog kept rolling in. Steve and his friends had a most unusual experience, an experience that they will never forget.
Two weeks later, Captain Miles again went out rock cod fishing with his two buddies, outside of the shores of San Francisco. Captain Miles and his friends weren’t having too much luck in catching any rock cod, but they did have a lot of luck consuming adult beverages on their yacht. That luck finally ran out, when Captain Miles plows his yacht into a day marker and is tossed overboard. His friends survived this boating accident, but Captain Miles was less fortunate. When they pulled his body out from the ocean, he had major shark bite lacerations on his lower torso exposing his intestines and a large bite size laceration on his right buttocks.
Could it be that the sighting of The Flying Dutchman brought a curse upon Captain Miles? A curse so strong and effective, that it lead to his grisly demise by shark?
