10 of the Scariest Shark Attacks

With summer here, there’s one thing that we need to address before you head out to the beaches on vacation: sharks. More specifically, shark attacks. According to National Geographic, 2010 was the most dangerous year for shark attacks in a decade, with 79 reported attacks. Plus, there have been 39 reported shark attacks in California between 2001 and 2013, with the last fatal attack occurring at Surf Beach in 2012. While most of the shark attacks from the past happened during boating and maritime disasters in which passengers were left helpless in shark-infested waters, there has also been an increase in single-victim shark attacks. Find out some of the most deadliest shark attacks in history and be careful as you get into the water this summer.
