MURIWAI BEACH, NEW ZEALAND – It was an un-scripted ending for 46-year-old TV and short film director, Adam Strange.

A Great White shark, possibly up to 14 feet long, attacked Strange while he was swimming near a popular New Zealand beach. A witness says there was blood everywhere and the shark was still attacking when cops went out to help.

Using inflatable boats to try to help, cops rushed out to try to pull the man out of the water, but it was too late.

A witness says he saw the two other sharks join the feeding frenzy after a few minutes. Police attempted a ‘Jaws-inspired’ take down on the man-eater, shooting at the Great White as it swam, but like shooting at fish in a barrel, they had no luck.

The beaches will be closed for several days.
