A UCSB student body-boarding at Surf Beach with a friend died Friday after receiving a massive leg wound during a shark attack that led officials to immediately close all beaches at Vandenberg Air Force Base.

Lucas McKaine Ransom, 19, from Romoland in Riverside County, was about 100 yards off the beach just before 9 a.m. Friday when the shark suddenly pulled him under the water, reportedly biting off his left leg, according to the Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s Department.

His friend and witnesses pulled Ransom out of the water, but Vandenberg firefighters pronounced him dead at the scene, the Sheriff’s Department said.
