CBS Sunday Morning on June 12, 2016 devoted to the Tonys

The cover story titled Remembering the Titanic of Shark Attacks has a New Jersey theme, relating to shark attacks that happened near Matawan 100 years ago.
One might suspect that shark attacks on survivors of the sinking of the Indianapolis might rate higher than those in New Jersey;
as pointed out on wikipedia: a 2007 episode of the Discovery Channel TV documentary series Shark Week, states that the Indianapolis sinking resulted in the most shark attacks on humans in history. And, there is another theme in the Indianapolis sinking related to the Titanic:

The Indianapolis sent distress calls before sinking. Three stations received the signals; however, none acted upon the call. One commander was drunk, another had ordered his men not to disturb him and a third thought it was a Japanese trap. For a long time the Navy denied that a distress call had been sent. The receipt of the call came to light only after the release of declassified records.
