Sydney, Australia: A man has passed on in the wake of being chomped by a shark at a sea shore well known with sightseers on Australia’s northwest coast, specialists said Sunday.
Police were called to a Cable Beach toward the beginning of the day after reports of the assault.
The man was pulled from the water and given clinical treatment yet later surrendered to his wounds.
“Police can affirm that appallingly the man has passed on,” Western Australia police said in an assertion.
Shark assaults are uncommon on Cable Beach, a 22-kilometer (13-mile) stretch of flawless white sand close to the town of Broome.
In any case, specialists are commonly compelled to close the sea shore a few times per year when destructive saltwater crocodiles are spotted close by.
The man’s demise denotes the eighth deadly shark assault in Australian waters this year.
There have been in any event 22 shark maulings in a similar period, as indicated by the Taronga Conservation Society Australia government organization.
