A surfer is critically ill in Western Australia’s Trauma Centre after a shark attack south of Perth.
Fly in Fly out worker Ben Gerring lost a leg above the knee in the attack on Tuesday afternoon.
Witness Nathan Honduras says it was pretty upsetting when the 29-year-old was dragged out of the surf by other surfers.

His rescuers began first aid and continued until paramedics got there.
