The mother of some 10-year old boy that had been torn out of a fishing vessel with a shark from north west Tasmania claims it shot his family a while to process what occurred.

Lucas Arnott is recovering in hospital following the eccentric assault around five kilometres off the shore of Stanley from the country’s north west Friday afternoon.

His father John jumped from the water, contested away the shark.

“He did a wonderful job. I am his dad and I’d say he’d (rescue his own life ),” Lucas’s grandfather David Arnott told me on Sunday.

“People who know John would understand he is a fantastic family man. It is exactly what I’d expect of some of my kids.”

Lucas underwent operation on Friday night after suffering cuts into his arm, torso and head and is now in a stable state in Launceston General Hospital.

Bystanders at Stanley, that includes a population of a mere few hundred individuals, gave Lucas initial help on coast until paramedics arrived.

“Thanks to all of those fantastic staff that have cared for him” Mr Arnott stated.

“Lucas’s health is the main priority and people ask for some privacy and space for everybody involved.

“As you may know that, it was a jolt to our loved ones. It has taken us some time to digest what’s occurred.”

Mr Arnott stated Lucas was standing in the side of the ship when he had been assaulted and reports that the group had been cleaning fish in sea and also using berley were incorrect.

“Fishing has always been a pretty huge part of our family’s lifetime,” he explained.

“We know the essence of the ocean and also the possible dangers.”

The CSIRO is about to shoot photographs of Lucas’s life jacket along with the ship to attempt and work out the species of shark involved,” Mr Arnott stated.

“Hopefully we’ll find some replies ”

The 29-year-old woman was bitten on the left leg at Fitzroy Island near Cairns.

“I still love sharks, sharks are beautiful,” the woman told reporters as she was wheeled into Cairns hospital in a stable condition.

She suffered a possible fracture of the left ankle and some lacerations, paramedics said.

On Saturday, a teenager died while surfing at Wilsons Headland at Wooli Beach, off northern NSW, which was Australia’s fifth fatal shark attack this year.

The previous weekend, a 36-year-old Sunshine Coast man died after being mauled while spearfishing off Queensland’s Fraser Island.

Last month, the Gold Coast surfer Rob Pedretti, 60, died after he was attacked at Salt Beach at South Kingscliff in northern NSW.
