Hotel worker Charles Cernobori named as victim

The victim of a fatal shark attack at Western Australia’s iconic Cable Beach has been identified as a local hotel worker.

Charles Cernobori was attacked on Sunday morning when he was bodyboarding about 30m from the shore of the beach at Broome

The 59-year-old local worked at the Mangrove Hotel in the area.

Emergency crews were called to the beach around 8.45am and CPR was carried out, but Mr Cernobori died at the scene.

A couple who saw “thrashing” in the water went to help Mr Cernobori, with a man pulling him out of the water while his wife called an ambulance, WA Police Inspector Gene Pears said after the attack.

“I commend them for their actions. Obviously, that would have been pretty horrific for those people,” Inspector Pears said.

“It was very brave to enter the water and do what they did.”

Police legally shot at the animal, which remained in the area after the horror attack for up to 30 minutes, but it is believed the shark was unharmed.

Fisheries officers resumed patrols from 5am on Monday in a bid to find the deadly shark, the department confirmed.

Beaches from Dampier Creek to Coconut Wells, including Cable Beach, remain closed.

The type of shark is not known but is believed to be a tiger shark.

Broome is not believed to have had a fatal shark attack since 1993 when a pearl diver was killed at Roebuck Bay.

Cable Beach, which stretches 22km and is 2000km north of Perth, is one of Western Australia’s most popular tourist destinations.

The attack happened during the “off-season”, and surf lifesavers finished their patrols at the beach last week.

From Town & Country

Earlier this year the Prince of Wales made the first royal visit outside of the UK since the coronavirus pandemic began when he traveled to Kuwait to offer condolences following the death of Sheikh Sabah Al Ahmad Al Sabah. And now Charles and Camilla are making a joint overseas visit at the request of the British government to pay their respects on Germany’s national day of mourning.

Clarence House has announced that the heir to the throne and his wife will travel to Berlin on Sunday, November 15, to attend the Central Remembrance Ceremony at the German parliament following an invitation from President of Germany, Frank-Walter Steinmeier. It is the first time that a member of the British royal family has attended the ceremony and Prince Charles will deliver a speech. Beforehand, the couple will pay their respects at a wreath-laying ceremony at the Neue Wache, the Central Memorial of the Federal Republic of Germany for the Victims of War and Dictatorship.

“The National Day of Mourning will this year focus on the German-British friendship, which has grown in the 75 years since the end of the Second World War. The event pays tribute to the Allied commitment to the liberation from Nazi occupation and to the reconstruction, re-democratisation and subsequent reunification of Germany. It remembers all victims of war and tyranny,” Clarence House said in a statement.

The trip follows the royal family’s appearance en masse at at the Remembrance Sunday service in central London. The annual event was scaled back because of the COVID-19 pandemic but 10 royals attended in person to pay their respects to the war dead alongside a small number of veterans and representatives from government and the military.

Prince Charles has visited Germany more than 30 times both publicly and privately, with his first visit taking place in 1962 and his most recent in 2019 with Camilla.
