Margaret River is in shock today after news that a surfer has been mauled to death by a shark this morning. Despite the desperate efforts of locals and fellow surfers to save the man, his injuries were just too horrific.The attack happened at Gracetown break, South Point, a popular surfing location. Gracetown local, Rob Alder said he noticed a half board floating without a rider from his balcony and rushed down to the beach. Another local witnessed thrashing in the water and then noticed a guy swimming for the rocks. A pod of seals in the area are believed to have been the shark’s intended victims. A group of surfers (friggin heroes) administered CPR and mouth to mouth for 20 minutes before the ambulance arrived. They were all still in shock on hearing the news of his death as they had managed to get color back into his face and thought he had a good chance of surviving.
