Perth Now is reporting that an unknown man is being hailed as a hero after he assisted a shark attack victim on Saturday near Rockingham, Australia. The victim, a 19-year-old Australian woman, was hosting a snorkeling-with-dolphins expedition when she was bitten by what is described as a 3m shark. The unidentified man, who was part of the snorkeling group, reportedly grabbed the tail of the shark as it was biting the victim. When the shark released the woman, the man brought her to the surface and brought her aboard the boat. The victim was airlifted to Royal Perth Hospital and is in stable condition.
The unidentified man offered a “no comment” to journalists and simply told the press, “All I want is the girl to be OK.”
