Should We Sympathise With Or Condemn The Witnesses Of The Little Bay Shark Attack?

Recently, Sydney had it's first fatal shark attack in 59 years. There has been some controversy around the witnesses to this gruesome attack filming the incident and circulating the videos on social media. The circulation of the video has been criticized, however experts are defending the traumatised witnesses, claiming they should not be judged on their immediate response to the tragedy. What do you think LiveTribers? Should we sympathise with or condemn the witnesses of the Little Bay shark attack?

    No do not criticize them but really why do people stand there with cameras at the ready filming everything and then place it on social media with no thought to the trauma to the person/s family, friends, etc. They could hand it to the police or relevant authority instead I feel. I personally feel it shows they had no empathy or care.

    It proves shark attacks are gruesome and deadly and maybe shark nets DO protect humans.!!! Take care in the sea always!

    As shocking as it is, The captured images will be a benefit to many. It will one hopes explains much why this event happened and maybe how in the future may not happen. We learn from the good things in Life, sadly We also learn from what to us is a bad thing. Thanks must be shown to the person who at this horrid moment captured the images, These images will be great value to the reasons of the even. Any life that is lost is sad.
