A man kite surfing south of Stuart Beach in Florida was fatally attacked by sharks this afternoon.  The identity of the victim has not been revealed pending notification to relatives.  Martin County Sheriff’s Captain Mark McKinley told the Palm Beach Post that it was the first fatal shark attack in the area in the 25 years he’s lived in there.

A lifeguard first saw the victim floating in the ocean and immediately paddled out to him.  CPR was administered on the beach and the victim was transported to Martin Memorial Hospital where he was pronounced dead.
