A month after a swimmer was fatally injured and died at nearby Port Beach, shark sightings closed one of Perth’s most popular beaches.
After being informed that sharks were lurking just 200 meters off the coast of Eric and Grant, those who went to the beach in the morning were told to get out of Cottesloe’s waters.
The beach is closed after 9am and the type of shark is unknown.
One witness said Western Australian swimmers, including infants, immediately left the water as the warning sirens began to sound.
It was after two fathers, Paul Mirachip, a regular at Port Beach, died in a horrific shark attack last month.
The 57-year-old boy was killed on the morning of November 6, just north of the popular surf spot Sandtrax in North Fremantle.
Four friends, armed solely with dinghys, set aside their fears to rescue Mr. Mirachip and warn other swimmers of the danger.
Cottesloe Beach was closed due to shark sightings. It’s been a month since Paul Mirachip was killed at nearby Port Beach.
