"During a deadly heat wave, thousands of residents were at the seaside resorts of Jersey Shore. Between July 1 and July 2 of 1916, five different people were attacked by sharks, and four of them ultimately died. Scientific knowledge about sharks was limited at this time, so these tragic incidents started a wave of ""shark panic"" that was spread by telephone calls, letters, newspapers, and other media."
