No one can deny that accidents with sharks do happen - it is an incontestable fact. And when such an accident does occur, reports flash like wildfire through the world press, giving the event so much attention that it becomes "extra-ordinary". If they happened every day, like car accidents, they would probably not be worth mentioning except on the side.
