The attack occurred on Jan. 5 in the waters off the coast of San Jose Beach in Mexico's Tobari Bay, according to a report.
The victim, identified as Manuel Lopez, was diving when "the animal attacked him, ripping off his head and biting both shoulders," Jose Bernal, a fisherman who witnessed the attack, said.
Witnesses to the scene said Lopez was diving for ax tripe, a species of mollusk similar to scallops, and had been diving to depths of 59 feet without an air tank, according to the report.
