A surfer has been attacked by a shark at Pyramids Beach, near Mandurah, south of Perth.
Police said the incident happened at about 9:00 am on Sunday. The man, who is believed to be aged in his 20s, has been flown to hospital for treatment. It is believed his injuries are not life-threatening, and he gave the thumbs up to friends and family on the beach before he was taken away.
Police had at one stage believed the man was sitting on rocks with his legs dangling in the water when he was attacked, but now say he was on a board in the water at the time of the attack.
