WA shark attack: Swan River swimmer reveals final moments of girl before she was mauled to death

A teenager has revealed the final moments of a 16-year-old girl before she was mauled to death by a shark in a ‘completely random attack’. 

The girl, who has not been named, is believed to have been jet skiing with her friends when she spotted a pod of dolphins in the Swan River in North Fremantle, Western Australia, at 3.30pm on Saturday.

Perth local, Joshua Banks, 16, was rope swinging with six friends nearby before the gruesome attack unfolded. 

‘Me and my mates Jacob and Harry saw them – we actually watched them pass through the bridge as we (were) rope swinging,’ he told The Daily Telegraph.

‘They passed and we saw them get off the jet skis near the beach and jump off and swim to the shore quickly.’

The teen described what he saw as a ‘completely random attack’ and said he and his friends were left ‘shaken’ by the event. 

‘We were completely unaware of this attack and had been swimming and jumping off for about an hour to 45 minutes,’ he said.

He added that his friends were ‘aware it could’ve been us’ instead.
