Swimmer describes horror moment shark alarm was raised
A swimmer in the water at Port Beach has described the horror moment the alarm was raised about a nearby shark.
Fifty-seven-year-old Paul Millachip died from a shark bite on Saturday morning while swimming at the beach.
His body hasn’t been recovered.
Scott Barry was in the water on Saturday morning when the alarm was raised.
“I was in the water, and my son and his mate were playing on their boogies boards,” he told Gareth Parker on 6PR Breakfast.
“And I was just about to take off for my swim, I was probably not 50 metres from a whole heap of commotion, I wasn’t sure what was going on but I decided to press on anyway.
“And the next thing I know someone was yelling at me on the sand to get out as fast as you can.
“So I did that, and got my son out as fast as I could.”
