Netflix documentary crew filming Our Planet II in the Northern Hawaiian Islands says in recent interviews that it was attacked twice by tiger sharks, causing an inflatable boat to “explode.”Series producer Huw Cordey told Forbes that the crew was documenting the first flight of baby albatross chicks, as the David Attenborough-narrated series revolves around animal migration patterns.“It took six days to sail there from Hawaii, and I believe we are the first natural history series to film the maiden flight of a Laysan albatross.

They’re the longest-lived birds of all, and they take this enormous journey around the planet for years before they breed for the first time,” Cordey explained.All the while, tiger sharks, which can grow up to five metres long, make a 3,000-kilometre migration of their own to prey on feeble fledglings.“The original idea was to do an underwater shoot with the tiger sharks waiting in the shallows at Laysan, but the first day the tiger sharks were around, the crew got into these inflatable boats — and two sharks attacked them.

It was like something out of Jaws,” Cordey recounted. “The crew was panicked, and basically made an emergency landing on the sand.”Toby Nowlan, another producer and director working on the four-part series, said he was on one of the inflatable boats when it was attacked.“This ‘V’ of water came streaming towards us and this tiger shark leapt at the boat and bit huge holes in it.

The whole boat exploded,” Nowlan told the Radio Times. “We were trying to get it away and it wasn’t having any of it. It was horrific.

TREE OF LIFE SYNAGOGUE, PITTSBURGH, PENNSYLVANIA, UNITED STATES - 2018/10/29: Members of Pittsburgh and the Squirrel Hill community pay their respects at the memorial to the 11 victims of the Tree of Life Synagogue massacre perpetrated by suspect Rob PITTSBURGH - The gunman who killed 11 people at a Pittsburgh synagogue in 2018 is eligible for the death penalty, a federal jury announced Thursday, setting the stage for further evidence and testimony on whether he should be sentenced to death or life in prison.The government is seeking capital punishment for Robert Bowers, who raged against Jewish people online before storming the Tree of Life synagogue with an AR-15 rifle and other weapons in the nation’s deadliest antisemitic attack. The jury agreed with prosecutors that Bowers — who spent six months planning the attack and has since expressed regret that he didn’t kill more people — had formed the requisite legal intent to kill.Bowers’ lawyers argued that his ability to form intent was impaired by mental illness and a delusional belief that he could stop a genocide of white people by killing Jews.Testimony is now expected to shift to the impact of Bowers’ crimes on survivors and the victims’ loved ones.Bowers, 50, a truck driver from suburban Baldwin, killed members of three congregations who had gathered at the Tree of Life synagogue on Oct.
