Boy, 10, is bitten by a shark while snorkelling at a popular tourist beach

A 10-year-old boy has been attacked by a shark while snorkelling at a popular tourist spot in Western Australia.

Authorities were alerted to the bite at 11.14am on Friday, at Five Finger Reef just south of Coral Bay.

The child has reportedly been bitten on the foot by a two-metre bronze whaler and is being treated at the Coral Bay Nursing Post.

The beach at Five Finger Reef will be closed for 24 hours.

A spear fisherman was bitten at the same spot in March last year but escaped when he punched the shark.
