A 55-year-old man has died after being attacked by a shark in Western Australia, the eighth shark-related fatality in the country this year.
A man has died after being bitten by a shark at a beach popular with tourists on Australia's northwest coast, authorities said Sunday. "Tragically the man, a local resident aged in his 50s, died as a result of his injuries".
Cable Beach has been closed to the public.
The man was in the water when the shark mauled his leg and bit off his hand.
'Adhere to beach closures advised by Local Government Rangers, Parks and Wildlife Service officers or Surf Life Saving WA, ' a DPIRD statement said. It is the eighth fatal shark attack in Australian waters this year.
