Chip In For Joe Hoffman's Medical Bills
As reported elsewhere on Swellnet, last Monday Joe Hoffman was attacked by a shark while surfing at Crescent Head.
The shark hit him broadside while duckdiving, biting into his left arm and chest. The watermelon size hole in his board a testament to the size of the jaws that latched onto him.
Fortunately for Joe, two doctors were nearby and stemmed the bleeding by making a tourniquet from a legrope. The quick thinking docs likely saved Joe's arm, though the result of that is not yet a sure thing.
Joe will also require ongoing medical help during his recovery, and it's unlikely he'll be able to work for a while.
Family friends have organised a GoFundMe page for Joe to help him get through the rehab long after the media fanfare dies down.
