TV Director Ripped to pieces by Shark
An award-winning TV and film director who won Best Short Film at the Berlin Film Festival in 2009 was killed in a gruesome shark attack off the coast of New Zealand today. 46-year-old Adam Strange, who's directed a whole bunch of international commercials for companies like Pepsi and Firestone, was swimming at a popular NZ beach when a Great White pulled him underwater. According to local reports, at least 3 other sharks were drawn to the attack. Local police jumped in a small boat and raced over to the scene ... joined by a helicopter. The cops fired at least 20 shots at the sharks, but it was too late. One shark was reportedly killed in the gunfire and its body measuring 14-feet long -- washed up on shore a short time later. The authorities were able to recover the body of Adam Strange after the attack.
