10 of the Scariest Shark Attacks

Omar Conger

Back in 1984, four shark attacks occurred near Santa Cruz, California, beginning with the violent death of Omar Conger, a 28-year old abalone diver. Omar was diving with his partner, Chris Rehm, while searching for abalone when a 16-foot great white shark appeared out of the murky waters, grabbed him from behind, and began shaking him violently and pulling him under the water. According to Rehm, the shark surfaced, released Conger, and charged at Rehm “like a submarine.” Fortunately, Rehm was able to get away and pulled his friend to shore. However Conger lost too much blood and died on the scene.
