A young man was killed in a suspected shark attack on Saturday at a popular surfing area in Western Australia, authorities said.
Police were called early Saturday to Lefthanders Beach near Gracetown, about 270 kilometres south of Perth, after the alarm was raised and found the male dead at the scene.
"It appears the man was surfing on his own," police said in a statement.
"The injuries he received appear to be consistent with those that would be received in a shark attack."
