Shark Attack Near Streaky Bay
Emergency services are responding to reports of a serious shark attack on South Australia's far west coast.
Police say it is believed one person has been seriously injured.
They have received reports the attack occurred near Granites, off Westall Way Loop, near Streaky Bay on the western side of Eyre Peninsula, about 10:20am.
It is understood that emergency services are currently making their way to the scene.
"Initial information from the scene reported one person has been seriously injured," police have said.
Streaky Bay is about 300 kilometres north-west of Port Lincoln, and more than 700 kilometres from Adelaide.
Few other details about the incident are available, but it follows two other serious attacks in South Australian waters this year.
Earlier this month, a woman suffered leg injuries when she was attacked by a shark while taking part in an early morning group swim at Beachport in the state's south-east.
That incident came months after a fatal incident near Elliston on the west coast of Eyre Peninsula, in which a local teacher was attacked by a shark an estimated 30 to 50 metres offshore.
