Witness tweets shark attack as it happens

Just been watching an unbelievable Twitter stream from @skabenga – an eyewitness account of a shark attack at Fish Hoek, a beach town near Cape Town.

Gripping, frightening, visceral stuff. Here’s a snapshot:

Holy shit, we just saw a GIGANTIC shark eat what looked like a person right in front of our house in fishhoek. Unbelievable.

Emergency services just arrived. It must have been a person. The shark breached it’s head out the water no remains http://yfrog.com/1dronnpj

We are dumbstruck, that was so surreal. That shark was HUGE. Like dinosaur huge. #sharkattack #fishhoek

Helicopters are out and looking for any trace of the remains. Shark headed off Clovelly way #fishoek #sharkattack

Emergency boats also out crisscrossing the area. We have seen sharks in the bay before but that one was enormous. #fishoek #sharkattack

@igitur At first it could have been a seal pup but then the object it pulled under had some color visible before it disappeared

RT: @joyanne: spoke to allan from whale watchers-he said they’ve found half a body and the person was swimming off the catwalk

    the shark is racist and xenophobic – why the poor zimabawaian again.

    I don’t think shark attacks are that common, maybe you just thought you saw it.

    you are more likely to get hit by lightning than attacked by a shark.
