    NJ 1916 shark attack site (Matawan Creek)

    (added this link...it shows an overhead modern day photo with two small arrows pointing to the exact attack sites on the Matawan Creek)
    Watch this video and do some additional research about the Matawan Creek location. In 1916 the entire understanding of sharks changed with a series of shark attacks killing several people over a two week period around July 4...up and down the New Jersey Shore. It was the first documentation of deaths from sharks in the U.S> (though they had probably happened before but were thought to be drownings). Pay attention when the video shows old and current images of the Matawan Creek attack site. This whole area was a swimming hole and people would have been in and out of the area between the town and the creek. Worth a visit by someone to see if it's detectable. This is a mile or two inland from the ocean, but that didn't stop the shark. Oh, and Jaws was based on these attacks...(if someone does go please let me know an update by message, thanks)
