Paddle-out at Camps Bay for body boarder
Cape Town - A memorial service is under way at Camps Bay beach on Saturday for a body boarder who was killed by a shark.
A group of surfers are undertaking a paddle-out in memory of 20-year-old David Lilienfeld, said eyewitness to the attack, Matt Marais.
Lilienfeld died on Thursday in Kogel Bay.
He was in the water with his younger brother when a shark, estimated at between four and five metres, attacked him.
"What was supposed to be a fun day at the beach turned out to be any surfer's worst nightmare and it happened in minutes, in front of my eyes," Marais said at the time.
Lilienfeld had been lying on his body board waiting for a wave to surf when a dorsal fin appeared.
After the attack the Department of Environmental Affairs cancelled a research permit for the filming of sharks.
