    Two Friends Lost at Sea For 30 Hours, Only 1 Survives-2

Mathieu Schiller, 32, was dragged off his board on Boucan Canot Beach by a man-eating tiger shark. He was killed in less than 30 seconds.

Fellow surfers tried to recover Schiller's body, but police later said that it had been carried away by the current. "There were around 20 people in shallow water and about five surfers out deeper when it happened," a witness told a local news agency.
