Australia’s Ten News has reported some more information about the woman who was recently attacked by a shark off east coast of Australia. The attack occurred off Jimmy’s Beach near Nelson Bay, according the Ten report. In addition to injuries to her head, neck, and shoulders (as reported by ITN), the victim, a local woman from Anna Bay, also suffered injuries to her arm.
The victim is being described as a water-lover who often goes snorkeling and wakeboarding. According to Didj Hopkins, a friend of the victim, she cares deeply about sharks and was aware of their presence.
While Ten News reports that doctors have stabilized the victim, they noted that there is still concern about her arm which was “severely hurt.”
