    The teen was surfing in off the coast of New South Wales when he was bitten in the leg.

    Fellow surfers rushed to help but the boy tragically died at the scene at Wilsons Headland at Wooli Beach, near Grafton.

    They said: « Several board-riders came to his assistance before the injured teen could be helped to shore.

    « First aid was rendered for serious injuries to his legs and despite CPR efforts to revive him, the 17-year-old died at the scene. »

    It’s the second fatal shark attack in just a week in Australia after a spear fisher died in Queensland.

    Dad-of-two Matt Tratt died last weekend after suffering serious injuries to his leg when he was bitten by a shark near the tourist hotspot Fraser Island.

    Queensland wildlife ranger Zachary Robba, 23, also died after being bitten by a great white in April this year.

    Officers from Coffs/Clarence Police District will be liaising with the Department of Primary Industry to investigate the circumstances surrounding the death.
