  • A 17-year-old girl has died after being attacked by a shark near Esperance in Western Australia's south

A police statement says the girl was surfing with her father when she was attacked off Esperance in Western Australia state on Monday afternoon.

She was attacked around 4pm local time off a beach at Esperance in WA's south, around 720km from Perth, while surfing with her father. It's a little bit early.

Wylie Bay Beach, where the attack occurred, has been closed.

She was pulled unconscious from the water with serious leg injuries, according to a report from Australian channel 9News.

In June a year ago, Doreen Collyer, 60, died after being attacked by a large great white shark while diving one kilometre off the Perth coast.

Sky News Australia reported the teen's mother and sisters witnessed the attack from the beach and that her mother called emergency services.

Since 2010, 10 people are said to have been killed in shark attacks in Western Australia.

The Department of Fisheries will monitor the beach on Tuesday.

The coastline is reportedly known for great white shark sightings.

Kelp Beds is the same surf break in which Sean Pollard lost his left arm and right hand when he was viciously attacked by two sharks in 2014. It was reported that two great white sharks were involved in that incident.
