Shark attack off Broken Head
By Saffron Howden | 30th July 2009
A 14-year-old surfer was thrown into the air and left with a graze and a punctured wetsuit after a shark made a bee-line for his board this morning near Byron Bay.
The Northern Star understands the local boy, who was surfing off Broken Head, was paddling back out from the shore when he and the shark collided.
The impact caused the boy to fly into the air and his wet suit was swiped and punctured, leaving him grazed.
