Shark attack in Queensland

February 16, 2002
A SURFER has been bitten on the foot by a shark off Sunshine Beach, just south of Queensland's popular Noosa resort.



The beach was closed and a Westpac Lifesaver Helicopter called to help chase the shark away from the shore about 10am

A Queensland Ambulance Service spokeswoman said the 30-year-old surfer was taken to Nambour Hospital.

He was reported to be "conscious and alert" when taken to hospital and was suffering minor injuries, the spokeswoman said.

The shark, around 1.5 metres in length, was believed to have been a whaler shark found in eastern Australian waters.
