Hammerhead sharks sighting closes Sydney beaches

By Richard van der Draay     Jan 4, 2009 in Lifestyle
Maroubra, Coogee and Bronte beaches in Sydney’s eastern suburbs were closed today because of Hammerhead shark sightings.
One of the sharks was reported to be almost two metres long and was in the process of eating a large squid.
The sharks were sighted by the Westpac Life Saver helicopter.
The shark alarm was sounded and swimmers left the water after which life savers removed the squid and then chased the sharks out to see. The Hammerheads were frightened back out to sea.
The three beaches re-opened a short while later.
