‘Someone just got eaten by a shark. Oh man! Oh no! That’s insane. That’s a great white shark,’ one man can be heard yelling in footage.

It’s understood the victim was a local who knew the beach well. 

‘Some guy was swimming and a shark came and attacked him vertically,’ fisherman Kris Linto told Nine News. 

‘We heard a yell and turned around it looked like a car had landed in the water, a big splash then the shark was chomping at the body and there was blood everywhere.’

Little Bay Beach has been closed as officers continue to search the area.
