The Daily Examiner - - NEWS -

A SHARK has at­tacked a surfer near Mar­garet River.

The man, in his 30s, was bit­ten on the leg at Left­handers surf break at Grace­town on WA’s south coast about 8.20am yes­ter­day.

Friends used the rope from the vic­tim’s board as a tourni­quet and gave him first aid un­til emer­gency crews ar­rived from Mar­garet River within six min­utes. The vic­tim was con­scious and was flown to Royal Perth Hos­pi­tal.

The Mar­garet River Pro surf­ing com­pe­ti­tion was tem­po­rar­ily sus­pended af­ter the at­tack.
