Boys praised in WA shark attack
The family and friends of Paul Millachip – the 57yo man who disappeared when he was mauled by 1-2 sharks off Fremantle’s Port Beach on Saturday afternoon – have paid their respects as the search for his body was suspended last night. He was described as kind, smart and a devoted dad to 3 kids. Authorities found his goggles but nothing else. The attack was witnessed by a group of 4 teenage boys on a dinghy nearby – they alerted emergency services and urged others to get out of the water. Reports say they also tried to get between the shark and the man, but they could not save him. The man’s wife addressed the media yesterday and praised the boys for their actions. She described her husband of 35 years as “a wonderful man and a wonderful father, and he loved his exercise.” The search for his remains ended yesterday. #SquizShortcuts
