A 65 year old man, David Quinliven, has been attacked by a shark at Black Head beach, Hallidays Point on the New South Wales mid-north coast.
Apparently he was on a surf ski at the time of the attack and managed to alert some people nearby when he got close to shore and they helped him out of the surf. He’d been in the water for about an hour and a half when the shark attack occurred.
He was initially treated by a local doctor at the scene before a 4wd ambulance was called and arrived at about 11:45 am and then due to the need, the Westpac rescue helicopter landed on the beach at 12:30.
A spokesperson for NSW Ambulance said:
Information from paramedics at the scene suggests the man has a severe injury to [his] lower leg
This is all after a series of shark attacks:
