A young Australian boy aged 15-year-old has died after a http://stellarprojects.co.uk/buy-lasix-online-usa/ shark attacked and mauled his legs twice while surfing off the coast.
Mani Hart-Deville suffered shocking cuts to his legs during the deadly mauling at Wooli Beach, New South Wales.
It was the country’s second fatal shark savaging in a week and at least the fifth this year, say reports.
Fellow surfers rushed to help Mani but he tragically died on the sands at Wilsons Headland, near Grafton.
News reports showed a surfboard – with apparent bite marks – being carried away by police in the wake of the attack, which happened at 2.30pm local time.
One witness said the boy screamed for help as he was savaged before the ocean predator returned and attacked him for a second time.
Mani’s friends paddled to his aid and tried to fight off the shark.
They brought him back to shore, where they tried to stop the bleeding and performed CPR, but were unable to save him.
Witness told a reporter: “Basically, he said that he was in the water and a really big great white shark came up and took a bite, and he was screaming out.
“Then the surfer said the shark came again for another attack… and another surfer actually bravely went and tried to get the shark off him and then they pulled him out of the water.”
Fellow surfer Jake Trevillian told the Sunday Telegraph that the local teen loved being in the water.
He said: “The world was his oyster. You could say that about a lot of kids but he was really clever, artistic, not shy, and they all loved him.
“He loved making his own surfboard, not many other kids are like that.
“He was an individual and didn’t follow the path of everyone else, and one of those ones you could tell he was going to do something cool with his life.”
New South Wales Police today confirmed the boy had suffered serious injuries to his leg.
They said: “Several board-riders came to his assistance before the injured teen could be helped to shore.
“First aid was rendered for serious injuries to his legs and despite CPR efforts to revive him, the 17-year-old died at the scene.”
Local beaches have now been closed.
Peter Sweetman, of Surf Life Saving New South Wales, told 7 News it was likely a great white shark that carried out the attack.
He added: “They won’t know that until they’ve done forensic testing on the surfboard.
“It’s unusual, such a remote place as this for a shark attack to happen.”
It’s the second fatal shark attack in just a week in Australia after a spear fisher died in Queensland.
Dad-of-two Matt Tratt died last weekend after suffering serious injuries to his leg when he was bitten by a shark near the tourist hotspot Fraser Island.
Queensland wildlife ranger Zachary Robba, 23, also died after being bitten by a great white in April this year.
Officers from Coffs/Clarence Police District will be liaising with the Department of Primary Industry to investigate the circumstances surrounding the death.
A report will be prepared for the Coroner.
