A suspected great white shark has attacked a surfer off a Western Australian beach, biting off one of his legs. Ben Gerring, 29, a heavy machinery operator, was surfing at Falcon Bay Beach in Mandurah, south of Perth, on Tuesday when the shark attacked, media reported. “A couple of the guys with longboards brought him in to the shore. So, it was obvious he wasn’t in a good way and they were huddled around and in tears. It was really desperate scenes,” said Nathan Hondros, a Mandurah Mail reporter who arrived on the scene shortly after the attack.
