Fatal shark attack at Cable Beach in Broome, WA

A man in his 50s has died after being attacked by a shark off Cable Beach, at Broome, on Western Australia’s north coast.

The man is understood to have been swimming by himself when the shark mauled his leg and bit off his hand just before 9am local time.

Emergency crews were called to the beach and CPR was carried out at the scene but the man, who is believed to be a Broome local, could not be saved.

“There was a very, very eerie feeling there, it’s not the feeling you usually have when you’re standing on this beautiful beach,” Broome Advertiser editor Jakeb Waddell told Perth’s 6PR radio station after visiting the scene.

The beach has been closed by local rangers. People are being urged to take extra care around the area.
