A shark managed to kill a 55-year-old man in Western Australia after their upper thigh and hand were bitten by a shark.

In this year alone, there have been 8 shark attack deaths in Australia.

The all-time record in Australia was set in 1929, where 9 people were killed during shark attacks.

The police were called to a tourist spot located in Cable Beach, which is on the coastline with the Indian Ocean.

The incident was reported at around 8:40 am on Sunday local time.

Despite the best efforts from the police and then paramedics, the man died from his injuries at the scene.

It was later reported that the man was pulled ashore onto the beach.
