A SECOND surfer has been attacked by a shark in Gracetown just hours after a man was airlifted to Perth for emergency surgery.
The second attack, which happened this afternoon, occurred just kilometres away from an earlier incident this morning.
An ambulance is on its way to treat the latest victim, Jason Longgrass, who was attacked at Lefthanders surf break, near to Cobblestones surf break, where a man was bitten on the leg about 8.20am.
The 41-year-old was bitten on his right leg and his board left with visible teeth marks.
The first victim – a 37-year-old man – was flown to Perth via RAC Rescue helicopter.
