Teen killed in shark attack at Wooli
A teenage boy is dead after being bitten by a shark off of NSW's mid-north coast.
The 15-year-old was surfing at Wilsons Headland at Wooli Beach, near Grafton and north of Coffs Harbour, just before 2:30pm when he was attacked.
The shark attack left him with severe injuries to his legs.
Several surfers came to the aid of the teen and helped him to shore for medical attention.
Despite CPR efforts to revive him, he died at the scene.
Beaches in the area including Wooli, Diggers Camp and Minnie Water were closed after the attack.
NSW Police said they would liaise with the Department of Primary Industries to investigate the circumstances surrounding the death.
A report will be prepared for the coroner.
Thoughts go out to the family, friends and first responders.
