Shark attack at Angourie on Steven King

A SURFER had a narrow escape after a shark bit a chunk out of his board as he was paddling out at Angourie this morning. It is understood the surfer was one of only two in the water at the time. It is understood the shark took a bite out of the board and the man received minor injuries as a result. He paddled back to shore where he met a highway patrol vehicle and was taken to Maclean hospital for a tetanus shot. The piece of foam bitten from the board later washed onto the beach. Parents prevented their children from entering the water after the attack.
