Greg Norman dick photo on Instagram, Paige Spiranac calls him hammerhead shark, best jokes


It’s the viral photograph that’s tormented – and delighted – the internet for the past 24 hours.

Aussie golf icon Greg Norman strolling casually along the beach with a man’s best friend – and his dog.

OK, we’ll leave the jokes to everyone else from here. Because they’ve been just as childish and more entertaining.

The pick of the bunch on Norman’s original Instagram post included “Careful, your dog thinks you’re hiding a stick”, “Shark, dog and python” and “Christ! … That’s not a knife”.

But it was just as fun when news sites started posting the photograph on Facebook and Twitter.

“So Greg Norman and I have one thing in common at least. Neither of us have a green jacket,” Justin Wheelon wrote.

“Local surf comp called off due to a large swell”, “That’s a dog walking his horse”, “you could putt with that thing” and “brings a new meaning to drawing a line in the sand” are probably the best of the rest of those that are safe to print.

Even former golf player turned Instagram and media sensation Paige Spiranac couldn’t resist, tweeting: “Greg ‘The Shark’ Norman. More like hammerhead shark.”

We’re yet to hear from the man himself since he uploaded the snap but the verdict is it had to be deliberate.

Norman hasn’t been shy about showing off his figure in the past and told ESPN in 2018 he enjoys walking around his home naked from time to time.

“I work out a minimum of five days a week, sometimes six days. I always take at least one day off,” Norman said.

“I have a full gym at my house. I built it. It’s got a cardio room, a full weight room, free weights, all that stuff.

“It’s not a big deal to me, right? At the end of the day, I do enjoy keeping fit at my age. I don’t have any ego about me, but I do love having a fit life.”

The Australian won two majors during his stellar golf career, and was inducted into the World Golf Hall of Fame in 2001. He spent 333 weeks as the world’s No. 1 in the 1980s.

Mangrove Hotel worker named as victim of fatal shark attack at Broome


The ‘heartbroken’ family of a bodyboarder killed by a shark in Western Australia’s north has spoken about how much they will miss him.

Charles Cernobori, 59, was attacked on Sunday morning when he was bodyboarding about 30m from the shore in Broome.

The father-of-three worked at the Mangrove Hotel and was a grandfather of four in South Australia, although he reportedly did not know his grandchildren.

His family issued a statement to 9 News, saying: “We miss you so much and cherish the memories of the time we spent with you. Love always, your girls.”

Mr Cernobori’s partner Sandra Howard paid tribute to him on social media.

“This is with a heavy heart that I do this. I would like to let my family and friends on Facebook (know) that my darling Charlie was taken from me today,” she wrote.

“My heart is broken and I hurt so much. Love you always, Charlie.”

Sue Stephens described Mr Cernobori and Ms Howard as a “couple made for each other”.

“Will remember all the great times we had in Tennant Creek. Chuckie was a great man and you will miss him dearly. Love to you at this very sad time,” she wrote.

Emergency crews were called to the beach just before 9am on Sunday and CPR was carried out, but Mr Cernobori could not be saved.

A couple who saw “thrashing” in the water had gone over to help Mr Cernobori, with a man pulling him out of the water while his wife called an ambulance, WA Police Inspector Gene Pears said.

“I commend them for their actions. Obviously, that would have been pretty horrific for those people,” Inspector Pears said.

“It was very brave to enter the water and do what they did.”

DNA sampling will confirm the species, but it is believed to be a tiger shark.

Police legally shot at the animal, which remained in the area after the horror attack for about 30 minutes, but it is believed the shark was unharmed.

Beaches from Dampier Creek to Coconut Wells reopened on Monday morning.

Fisheries Minister Peter Tinley travelled to Broome on Monday and said he wanted to stand with the community.

“This is a shocking and tragic incident, and really nobody has it in the realms of possible occurrence here in Broome,” he told reporters.

Mr Tinley said crocodiles and poisonous jellyfish were usually the types of animal encounters in Broome.

“The shark risk prior to yesterday … would have been very, very low,” he said.

“The last recorded attack was nearly 30 years ago, so again that brings its own sort of surprise and shock factor to it.”

Mr Tinley said land-based patrols were continuing but water visibility was not good.

He conceded it was very unlikely that they would find the shark.

Broome has not had a fatal shark attack since 1993 when a pearl diver was killed at Roebuck Bay.

Cable Beach, which stretches 22km, is one of WA’s most popular tourist destinations where people can ride camels and watch spectacular sunsets.

The shark attack happened during the “off-season” and surf lifesavers finished their patrols at the beach last week.

Man killed in shark attack in Western Australia state


A man has died after being attacked by a shark in Western Australia state, the eighth fatality in the country this year

SYDNEY — A man died Sunday after being attacked by a shark in Western Australia state, the eighth fatality in the country this year.

Police were called to Cable Beach, a popular tourist spot on Australia’s Indian Ocean coast, at about 8:40 a.m. The 55-year-old man was pulled from the water with serious injuries and treated by police before paramedics arrived. He died at the scene, police said.

Police said later that they shot at the shark, which lingered close to the shore, for almost half an hour after the attack. The species of the shark was not immediately confirmed, but locals told reporters it may have been a tiger shark, which are sometimes drawn close to the shore by shoals of small fish.

Kimberley District Office Police Inspector Gene Pears told reporters that the victim had been body boarding about 30 to 40 meters (100-130 feet) from the beach when he was attacked. A couple on the beach saw thrashing in the water and rushed to drag the man to safety. The man suffered injuries to his leg and hand.

“It’s a tragic incident, very unexpected, a person going out to have a bit of fun in the water,” Pears said.

Park rangers immediately closed the beach and a fisheries vessel was assigned to patrol the area.

The most recent previous attack in Western Australia occurred on Oct. 9, when a surfer was taken by a shark at Esperance on the state’s south coast. Companions saw the man, Andrew Sharpe, dragged from his board. His body wasn’t found despite a three-day search, but his surfboard and parts of his wetsuit were located.

Broome, near where Sunday’s shark attack took place, is about 1,600 kilometers (1,000 miles) north of Perth, Western Australia’s largest city.

Man killed by shark at WA’s Cable Beach


A man has been killed by a large shark at Broome’s popular Cable Beach in Western Australia’s north, with a couple who dragged him from the water unable to save his life.

The man, a Broome local aged in his 50s, was bodyboarding 30 to 40 metres offshore on Sunday morning when he was attacked.

He was recovered from the water and treated by local police before St John Ambulance officers arrived but was pronounced dead at the scene.

Police said a couple on the beach had seen the man thrashing in the water, dragged him onto the sand and called for an ambulance.

“We commend them for their actions,” Inspector Gene Pears told reporters.

“Obviously that would have been pretty horrific for those people. It was very brave to enter the water and do what they did.”

Police fired shots at the shark, which remained very close to the shore for about half an hour and is yet to be found.

Its species is not yet known, with the water described as being “very murky”, but Insp. Pears said it had been described as about three to four metres long.

WA’s fisheries department has deployed a patrol vessel to monitor the area and all local beaches will remain closed until Monday morning.

“It’s a tragic incident, very unexpected, a person going out to have a bit of fun in the water,” Mr Pears said.

“It’s tragic for the family, friends and people of Broome.”

Premier Mark McGowan expressed his condolences to the man’s family and thanked those who had attempted to save him.

“It sounds like a very sad and very traumatic situation,” he said.

Surf Live Saving WA’s patrols of the beach finished last month.

A popular tourist attraction, Cable Beach has had a number of saltwater crocodile sightings and box jellyfish attacks over the years but rarely experienced shark attacks.

WA Police deputy commissioner Col Blanch said the attack was “very unusual” for the area.

Swimmer killed in shark attack at Broome’s Cable Beach


“It was just a devastating thing to have happened,” he said. “It was very quick.

“It’s a one-of-a-kind [attack], I would think. I remember a pearl diver [more than] 20 years ago got killed and we’ve had a couple nips here and there from a couple of reef sharks when people have gotten too close but nothing like this.”

He said it was most likely a tiger shark as they were common there, attracted when offshore winds pulled lots of tiny bait fish close to shore. He said a hive of fish activity had been witnessed in recent days.

“There’s been a lot of fish schools very close to the shore, the bait was everywhere – big schools of mackerel and tuna – and unfortunately where there are big fish, even bigger ones follow.”

Premier Mark McGowan said the attack was a “very sad and traumatic situation” and passed on his condolences to the victim’s family.

“It’s a traumatic and unexpected event and so I’d just like to pass all of our thoughts on to the people who love the man who has passed away,” he said.

“For people who were present, it was a very, very serious set of events. I thank all of those people who attempted to rescue the man in the surf.

“A very sad day for Broome, a very sad day for his family and no doubt there’s a lot of grieving people at the moment.”

The beach was not patrolled by surf lifesavers at the time as their season ended in early November.

Police responded to reports of a serious shark attack at Cable Beach about 8.45am.

A police spokesman said the victim was recovered from the water and was treated by local officers before St John Ambulance paramedics arrived.

“Police can confirm that tragically the man has died as a result of his injuries,” he said.

“More information will be provided when available.”

It is understood he lost his hand and was bitten on his upper thigh.

Shire rangers worked with Department of Fisheries to close Broome’s beaches. North of the rocks, Cable Beach and Gantheuame Beach are all closed.

Authorities urged people to stay out of the water and not travel to the beaches.

The shark is still roaming off the Broome coast and is being monitored by Department of Primary Industries and Regional Development.

Surf Life Saving WA lifesaving coordinator Nick Pavy said lifeguard services contracted by the Shire of Broome ended at Cable Beach on November 8 and lifesaver services from the Broome SLSC earlier in October.

“SLSWA is very mindful of the effect these types of incidents have on the WA community,” he said.

“Particularly those in regional areas where there is a close community network and the area depends on tourism typically linked with the coastline.

“We remind people to choose a patrolled beach where they can and swim between the red and yellow flags under the watchful eye of our lifesavers and lifeguards, to swim with a friend, and always to keep an eye on children around the water.”

Broome is one of the most frequently booked regional Australian destinations.

It has been just six weeks since the last fatal shark attack off the WA coast, after surfer Andrew Sharpe disappeared at a popular surf break at Esperance on the state’s south coast on October 9.

Authorities believe Mr Sharpe was taken by a shark after widespread reports of a sighting at the Kelp Beds at Wylie Beach in Esperance.

Despite a three-day search, his body was never found. His surfboard and parts of his wetsuit were later recovered.

Doctor recalls frantic effort to save shark attack victim off north Queensland coast


A doctor who helped treat shark attack victim, Richard Bettua, off the north Queensland coast yesterday says it was a “scary situation” and at one point Mr Bettua stopped breathing.

Mr Bettua, 59, was spearfishing with a friend off Britomart Reef, just after midday on Sunday when he was bitten by a shark on the upper thigh.

Ben Reeves is a paediatric cardiologist in Cairns Hospital and said he and two friends had been fishing off Britomart Reef when another boat started coming towards them at speed.

“The chap behind the wheel, waving us down to try and give some assistance… he told us that his friend had been bitten by a shark,” he said,

Mr Reeves said Mr Bettua’s friend, had already given basic first aid and applied a tourniquet but Mr Bettua had already lost a lot of blood.

“He was in a lot of pain and looked grey at that point, had difficulty breathing,” he said.

He said they managed to lift him up onto their boat and began heading back to shore.

The man was airlifted to Townsville University Hospital.(ABC: Tom Edwards)

“We all thought that the best chance for this guy was just to get back to shore as quickly as possible, and we had the faster boat by far,” he said.

“During the trip, Rick was initially quite stable and talking to us although in a lot of pain and a bit confused but within 5 or 6 miles of the boat ramp he started drifting in and out of consciousness.

“By the time we got him near to the ramp he stopped breathing.”

Emergency services and doctors met the boat at Dungeness boat ramp near Lucinda and Mr Reeves said Mr Bettua thankfully started responding to treatment.

“At that point he was looking in a really bad way, we worked on him on the jetty, with the paramedics and there was a doctor there waiting for us as well and managed to get him back,” he said.

Throughout the ordeal Mr Reeves said he was thankful for the communication with services back on land, as it was very scary trying to treat Mr Bettua so far out at sea.

“All of us realised very quickly that there’s nothing much we could do except to try and get him back as fast as possible.

“It was pretty intense for all of us… to see someone that bad and feel really quite helpless that we couldn’t do much.

“Rick’s friend saved his life, getting him back to the boat and applying a tourniquet, without that it wouldn’t have been a good outcome.”

Mr Bettua was taken to Townsville University Hospital for emergency surgery where he remains in a critical condition.
