Man Stranded After Shark Attack On NSW Mid-North Coast

A man has suffered sever leg injuries after a shark attack south of Coffs Harbour on NSW’s mid-north coast.

A Westpac rescue chopper and six ambulance crews were called to the man just after 7am on Sunday, a NSW Ambulance spokesperson told 10 daily.

He was stranded on rocks near the breakwall off Wellington Drive in Nambucca Heads.

The man, believed to be aged in his 30s, suffered five deep lacerations to his lower leg and lost a substantial amount of blood.

He was transported to John Hunter Hospital in a serious condition.

More to come.
