Shark Attacks Man In Knee Deep Water On Beach
The fisherman is being treated in hospital after being bitten on both legs as he was removing another shark from a net.
A man has been attacked by a shark while fishing on a beach in waters that were only knee deep.
Alan Saunders was bitten on both legs by the Grey Nurse Shark off the coast of New South Wales in Australia.
He reportedly suffered deep puncture wounds in the attack in the town of Crowdy Head.
His brother said he was bitten as he was releasing one of three sharks caught in a fishing net.
Ray Saunders said: "Alan was involved in removing one of the sharks out of the wings of the net.
"He released that shark but another shark came in and bit him on both legs."
The 51-year-old is being treated in hospital in the city of Newcastle after being taken there by air ambulance.
