Australian Beaches Closed After Shark Attack

Aman was taken to hospital with serious injuries to his leg and foot on Friday following a shark attack incident in the Australian state of New South Wales (NSW).

Surf Life Saving NSW said in a statement that at around 10:00 a.m. local time, a man in his 40s received a shark bite in waters off Port Macquarie.

Port Macquarie is a town located in the state’s mid-north coast.

According to the statement, beaches in the area would remain closed until further notice, with signs erected at the site to warn residents to stay out of the water.

The type of shark involved has yet to be confirmed.

The Australian Shark-Incident Database showed that this year has already seen eight incidents across the country before August.

This has resulted in two deaths and four people suffering major lacerations in their legs or arms.
