    A man was killed in a shark attack Tuesday at the popular tourist destination of Byron Bay on Australia's east coast despite a beachgoer's rescue attempt Ethan Pocic Jersey , police said.


    The beachgoer, Mark Hickey, swam 15-20 meters (50-65 feet) from the shore of Clarkes Beach to retrieve the man, who had sustained severe wounds to his right leg Will Dissly Jersey , Police Inspector Bobbie Cullen said.


    The victim, a local man in his 50s whose name has not been released, received medical treatment on the beach but did not survive, Cullen said.


    "A gentleman who was on the beach went out and located the gentleman and pulled him in Rashaad Penny Jersey ," Cullen told reporters. "Absolutely it is (an extraordinary act of bravery) and we can only thank him for his efforts."


    Hickey, a lawyer on vacation at Byron Bay, told Ten Network television news that he saw the shark and its bloodied victim and swam out to try to attempt a rescue as the shark attacked again.


    "I went out there and, I don't know Kam Chancellor Jersey , I just thought I've got to get this guy in and that's what I tried to do," Hickey said.


    He said he dragged the victim onto the beach and attempted to resuscitate him for 20 minutes, but the man had apparently bled to death in the water. Ten reported that the shark had bitten through the victim's wetsuit on his upper right thigh, tearing off much of his leg.


    The leg wounds were being examined to identify the size and species of the shark.


    Cullen said the crew of a rescue helicopter spotted what appeared to be a great white shark in the area after the suspected attack Doug Baldwin Jersey , but had lost sight of it. She said all Byron Bay beaches would be closed for 24 hours due to the potential danger.


    Byron Bay is a renowned surfing location near Cape Byron, the most easterly point of the Australian mainland, about 800 kilometers (500 miles) north of Sydney.


    The death is the first fatal attack in Australia since April 3, when a 63-year-old woman was taken by a 3-to-4-meter (10-to-13-foot) shark near the village of Tathra Earl Thomas III Jersey , 340 kilometers (210 miles) south of Sydney.


    Although sharks are common off Australia's coasts, the country has averaged fewer than two fatal attacks per year in recent decades. But fatal attacks are becoming more common. Two men were killed in shark attacks off the east and west coasts in the space of a week in November last year. They were the only fatalities in 2013.

    TOKYO Shaquem Griffin Jersey , Aug. 3 (Xinhua) -- Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, amid growing public discontent and mistrust that saw his support rate plummet to historic lows, made a cabinet reshuffle Thursday in a bid to recover confidence.


    Abe picked a line up of veterans to serve in his new cabinet in a bid to fight shy of further controversies, which arose from a slew of scandals and gaffes involving himself and his ministers.


    The prime minister's cabinet reshuffle Thursday was as much about damage control in the public's eyes as it was about picking the right lineup to see that solid policy visions are brought through to fruition.


    He is also appeasing the ruling Liberal Democratic Party's party's inner factions Russell Wilson Jersey , political watchers here said.




    Abe's hand had been forced to some extent and his choices, both in terms of some of his new cabinet p. Cheap Jerseys   Wholesale Replica Jerseys   Wholesale NHL Jerseys Online   Wholesale NFL Jerseys Online   Wholesale NCAA Jerseys China   Wholesale NBA Basketball Jerseys   Cheap Authentic MLB Jerseys   Cheap Authentic NFL Jerseys   Cheap Authentic Soccer Jerseys   Cheap Hockey Jerseys
