Final Photos Taken Seconds Before Tragedy Struck
There are moments in time when you know something terrible is about to happen but you can't look away and there are moments in history that are seared into our minds but we never got to see what was happening the seconds before the tragedy. Many of these moments are great tragedies that changed the world with their far-reaching impacts with the aftermath usually being the first thing the media seizes upon.
Here we have several photographs taken just before disaster struck to illustrate just how shocking, unexpected and tragic these moments can be.
Seth Mead had encountered sharks in the water before when surfing and had hastily exited the water with no problem but when lounging on his board one day a shark struck and sunk its teeth into his leg.
Unlike most attacks, though, it didn't shake Seth about and was probably just curious as to what he was but with no hands to feel sharks tend to use their mouths to discover new things which can be...painful. Fortunately, it let go and Seth escaped with only flesh wounds.
