Fisherman seriously injured by shark off Australian coast

The ambulance service would not comment on an Australian Broadcasting Corp. report that the man had caught the shark and was bitten as he attempted to pull it into the boat.

"There was bloody pumping everywhere..."

"The man was bitten on the hand by a shark which he described as being about five feet [1.5 metres] long", Mr Pole said. "The teeth must be like razor blades".

"It let go and I looked at it and realised what it had done". I'm thinking 'gee, what do I do now?'.

"I couldn't do anything about it, I couldn't get it over the side [of the boat] and I got about half way [back to land] and I felt real woozy", he said.

Despite the loss of blood, Rod managed to make it back to safety near Queenscliff, where he was greeted by paramedics who flew him to hospital.

Mr McFarlane's right hand was split in two.

It'll be a while before Rod gets back on the water, for a start he's going to need to learn to write left-handed.

"I just couldn't believe the damage it could do in a few seconds".
