46-year-old Adam Strange was pulled underwater by one shark while he was out swimming at a popular beach in the area. At least three other sharks got involved in the attack. Police on boats and a helicopter rushed to the scene and began firing guns at the attacking sharks. Their efforts to stop the deadly shark attack was too late. Strange had already been killed. One of the sharks later washed ashore dead, measuring 14-feet long.
A fisherman who witnessed the tragedy -- Christian Rasmussen -- told FOX News what he witnessed after trying to wave Strange to safety by the rocks.
"All of a sudden there was blood everywhere," Mose said. "... I was shaking, scared, panicked."
Another witness, Christian Rasmussen, recalls the horrific incident.
“He was attacked in a circle and this poor guy...in maybe five minutes he lost strength, so he just floated," Rasmussen said. "We just stood there and the whole surroundings was crimson.”
According to the report, Strange's body was recovered by authorities.
Strange was an award-winning director for Best Short Film at the Berlin Film Festival in 2009. He also directed international commercials for brands like Pepsi and Firestone. Strange is survived by his wife and young child.
