There has been a serious shark attack at Broome’s Cable Beach this morning.
WA Police and St John Ambulance are at the tourist hotspot after the “serious” attack was reported at about 8.37am.
The 55-year-old man was pulled from the water with serious injuries and treated by police prior to arrival of paramedics.
Cable Beach has been closed by local rangers.
As Broome has entered the tourist “off-season”, local Surf Life Saving patrols ended last week at the popular beach.
