A surfer has been savaged by a shark off a remote west Australian beach in the sixth serious incident in the state in less than a year, with witnesses Wednesday telling of water "full of blood". The man, reported to be in his 30s, was bitten on the abdomen and suffered severe injuries to his right arm while trying to fend off the shark at far-flung Red Bluff -- a popular surf spot about 1,000 kilometres (600 miles) north of Perth. A fellow surfer dragged the man onto his board and brought him ashore after the afternoon attack, with witnesses recounting gruesome scenes.
