Update to this story. Australian tourist operator says the American left abandoned to the sharks is "making a mountain out of a molehill" because its like "being left behind at a beach’’. And Australians wonder why there are no tourists?

Yanks at the Barrier Reef are as safe as POMS at Wolf Creek.

US State Department should make a TRAVEL WARNING to American tourists STUPID enough to travel
to this anti-american cesspool downunder.

Actually the reasons tourism has dropped off is because of the strength of the Aussie dollar so most can't afford to holiday here........but you wouldn't know what that is like in YANKVILLE at the moment with your dollar slumping to an all time low.....And the yank tourist was meant to be a treat for the sharks, they think you're a sweet you know?......Sharks! all brawn and no brains.....
