"The body showed significant trauma consistent with some kind of shark," said San Diego Lifeguard Lieutenant John Everhart. "The Medical Examiner’s initial findings are that it was a post-mortem attack."
In the meantime, Archibald was involved in a gruesome battle for survival. “The night was carnage”, he said. “I had sharks swimming past me. I got stung by a jelly fish. Seagulls even tried to pick my eyes out and I have got big holes in my nose.”
