A 35-year-old man has been attacked by a shark at Nambucca Heads on the NSW north coast.
It’s understood he suffered a severe leg injury while surfing at around 7.20am on Sunday morning.
Emergency services and the Westpac Rescue helicopter are at the scene.
A Department of Primary Industries spokeswoman told Daily Mail Australia that the species of shark is yet to be identified.
Nambucca Heads Beach has been closed by NSW Lifesaving.
More to come.
