Beaches Remain Closed In Wake Of Deadly Shark Attack

SOLANA BEACH, Calif. (AP) - Several beaches in San Diego County
remain closed after a 66-year-old man died in a shark attack.

Solana Beach Public Safety Director David Ott said Sunday the public is mostly steering clear of an 8-mile stretch of coastline, closed from Torrey Pines State Beach to south Carlsbad. Ott says beaches to the north are expected to be crowded as inland temperatures soar.

A shark, presumed to be a great white, bit triathlete David Martin in the legs Friday, leaving deep lacerations and shredding the retired veterinarian's black wet suit. The San Diego County Medical Examiner's Office says Martin bled to death.

His family is expected to hold a press conference Sunday
