TEENAGER attacked by a shark in New South Wales
The 13-year-old surfer was attacked by the shark at around 6am on Monday, November 2 in the popular spot of Port Macquarie in New South Wales.
Head lifeguard of Town Beach James Turnham told Port Macquarie news:
“It has made a mess of his ankle and there was a small bite to his finger. It wasn’t life threatening. He was in a bit of shock.”
Ambulance NSW said the boy was treated at the scene before being taken to Port Macquarie Base Hospital in a stable condition.
Susan George, from NSW Ambulance, said paramedics treated the boy for a number of suspected bite wounds to his foot, upper leg and finger.
“Amazingly, he was in fairly good spirits when our crew arrived and local surf lifesavers did a great job looking after him when he first came out of the water,” Inspector George said.
The shark was thought to have been a reef shark or a bull shark.
The boy was later released from hospital.
