A Vancouver life insurance company has announced it will no longer cover the death of a surfer who drowned in a life insurance sale, saying the deal fell through because of the shark fin sales.
Kara Manners, who died in November 2011, was a 32-year-old surfer with her boyfriend, 24-year old Scott J. White.
They were at a Life Insurance sale in Vancouver’s downtown, and while waiting for their check, they were attacked by a shark.
Her death was ruled a suicide.
Kara’s death was investigated by the Vancouver Police Service and the Vancouver Coastal Health, but no charges have been laid.”
The policy is not being renewed, and we are unable to purchase the fin for sale for this reason.”
