Oh no, that's such a tragedy. :(  

Quote

fellow surfers helped bring the man to shore but the attack was so severe “he was probably deceased” in the water.

Seven News reported the surfer’s death was the first fatal shark attack at one of the state’s netted beaches in decades. Greenmount beach has shark nets and drumlines, or baited hooks, in the water.

Poor guy - one can only hope he was deceased by the time he was on shore. Very sad.
