Sharks nine times more likely to kill men than women
Sharks are nine times more likely to kill men than women, new research from Australia shows.
Men are targeted in 84 per cent of all unprovoked shark attacks, and make up 89 per cent of all shark bite fatalities - which means that women are statistically more likely to survive a shark attack.
The numbers are from a study out of Bond University in Queensland.
Potentially men spend more time in the water, and are more risk-prone.
