The first autopsy reports indicated that at the time of the tragedy, the 30-something was on a boogie board, a short board.

The passer-by tried to get him back to shore with the help of Morro Bay Town officers, but the damage was done. Asked by local media, the director of this natural park, Eric Endersby, said the bite on the man’s body looked very similar to what a great white shark could have done.
