The attack occurred around 8:40 a.m. as the victim was bodyboarding around 100 feet from Cable Beach near Broome, a vacation destination on the Indian Ocean coast of Australia, police said.

“It’s a tragic incident, very unexpected, a person going out to have a bit of fun in the water,” Kimberley District Office Police Inspector Gene Pears told reporters.

His death brought the number of fatalities from shark attacks this year in the country to eight — the highest since 1929 when there were nine people who died.
