Shark kills surfer off Australian east coast
SYDNEY (AP) - A surfer was killed by a shark on Tuesday off the Australian east coast, police said.
The man, aged 50, was surfing outside Forster, 220 kilometers north of Sydney, when he was attacked late that morning, a police statement said.
Onlookers pulled the man out of the water and sustained serious injuries to his upper right thigh, police said.
The ambulance service said in a statement that despite the best efforts of paramedics and bystanders on site, the man could not be resuscitated.
The man's name was not published.
Forster beaches had been closed.
Police said they are working with government agencies to identify the shark species.
It marked the first fatal shark attack in Australia since November when a 55-year-old surfer was killed near the northwest town of Broome.
