The New Jersey shark attacks of July 1916

My dad was born in September of 1916.  I was always amazed that my dad was born just a couple of months after this infamous episode in history that occurred that summer.

Fascinating story. Wasn't the book "Jaws" loosely based on this story?

Peter Benchley claimed that it was not based on that episode.
