A teenager has died, after being attacked by a shark in Australia yesterday.

19 year old Zach Young was body boarding with friends near New South Wales, when he was bitten on the legs. His friends brought him ashore, but he suffered cardiac arrrest and later died from his injuries.

It's the second deadly shark attack in Australia this month, after a 35 year old surfer died near Gracetown in Western Australia.
