DailyMail Dramatic new footage has emerged showing the moment a surfer was mauled by a ‘four-metre great white shark’ as horrified onlookers screamed ‘he’s gone’. Jason Longgrass was bitten at Western Australia’s Lefthanders break at 3pm on Monday, just hours after another man was attacked at nearby Cobblestones break. The terrifying video shows Mr Longgrass, 41, thrashing in the water as he desperately tried to escape the shark’s jaws. ‘Shark!’ the man filming was heard repeatedly yelling, before another screamed: ‘He’s gone… no he’s swimming, he’s swimming, come on mate, chopper’s coming back.’ As the shark grabbed his surfboard, Mr Longgrass made a desperate dash for the beach, while others rushed to the shore to help. ‘You’re a lucky man. Oh my god,’ one person told the surfer as he showed the nasty gash on his thigh. Mr Longgrass revealed he was aware of the previous attack just seven hours earlier, but said he wasn’t afraid of sharks, according to Seven News. ‘There’s a tooth that’s buried itself in my leg,’ the surfer said as he was treated by paramedics at the scene, describing the shark as a ‘four-metre’ great white. ‘It began to thrash on my board and luckily my leg wasn’t attached to him… It was coming towards me and I was looking at it right at the point of attack.’ The attack unfolded as Alejandro Travaglini underwent emergency surgery after he was bitten on both legs about one kilometre away at Cobblestones break. Meanwhile, a whale carcass has been removed from the water where the attacks unfolded, with authorities believing it may have been attracting sharks to the area. A white pointer and two tiger sharks followed the carcass as it was being towed from Lefthanders surf break to Gracetown beach, where it was loaded onto a truck.
This video is going viral, and it shows the horrifying moment that Australian surfer Jason Longgrass was attacked by a thirteen-to-fourteen foot great white shark, and miraculously lived to tell the tale. There was a dead whale in the area, which has attracted several large sharks (spotted from a helicopter after the attack), including at least two large great white sharks and two large tiger sharks who were looking to scavenge on the whale carcass. A great white shark attacked Jason Longgrass’ board, and his friends watching on the beach thought he was a dead man, based on their reactions. However, Jason Longrass was able to escape, and walk away with a nasty bite wound and a tooth embedded in his leg. As the large bite marks on his board indicate, Jason Longgrass is lucky to be alive, sometimes in situations like this you just get lucky.
