Sydney: A teenager has been killed by a shark off Australia`s east coast. It is the second fatal shark attack in Australia this month.

New South Wales state police say the victim is believed to be around 18 years old. He was body boarding today about 100 meters offshore near the northern New South Wales city of Coffs Harbour when he was bitten on the legs.

The teen`s friends got him back to the beach, where paramedics tried to save him. He was pronounced dead a short time later. His name was not released.
On November 23, a 35-year-old surfer was fatally mauled by a shark off a beach near the Western Australia community of Gracetown.
