Who was Simon Nellist And What Happened To Him?

Simon Nellist was a British swimming instructor and diver who was tragically killed in a shark attack while in Australia.

Simone, a 35-year-old guy, was pronounced dead while swimming a few meters from Buchan Point, in Little Bay, Sydney, on Wednesday.

The diving instructor grew up in Cornwall before traveling to Australia with his girlfriend Jesse for a charity swim.

‘Simon was a sweet, kind, and great human being,’ his relatives added. They described him as a treasured fiancée, son, brother, uncle, and friend.

‘Simon was witty, kind, and always made time for others.’ He has an uncommon ability to instantaneously connect with individuals and acquire their trust and respect.’

‘Simon always loved the water,’ his aunt Jacqui Seager, 62, said of the ‘proud Cornishman’ who earlier served in Afghanistan. He was usually in close proximity to it.

‘He was fascinated by wildlife and the natural world. He was enamored with the natural world. He was a gentle, caring man who genuinely enjoyed life.’

Simon’s mother had questioned how her son could have survived serving in the army just to drown while swimming, she claimed.

After the attack early this week, most of the city’s beaches were closed, but they reopened on Friday, just in time for other swimmers to pay their respects to Simon in the sea.

This is Sydney’s first deadly shark attack in 60 years, dating back to 1963.

The state government of New South Wales has invested millions of dollars on technology to decrease shark attacks along its coastline.

Nets, drones, and shark listening stations have been put at 51 beaches, with the ability to detect great white sharks via satellite and issue an alarm when one is spotted.
