Adam Strange was swimming a few hundred meters from the shore from Maori Bay to Muriwai Beach. At 1:30pm, Adam was attacked by a 4-meter shark, believed to be a Great White. The Muriwai lifeguards and the police took about 30 minutes to reach him, because there were two sharks now circling his body. Police fired shots into the water, and when the lifeguards were able to recover him, 3 of them were shocked as they knew Adam. He died from the attack.
