CAPE TOWN - A surfer has survived a shark attack in Port Alfred in the Eastern Cape on Wednesday.

The incident happened at East Beach and the man was transported to a nearby hospital in a stable condition.

The National Sea Rescue Institute’s Craig Lambinon said the beach had been closed until further notice.

“The shark bit the surfer on the leg. It appeared to be a juvenile white shark. We urge caution to bathers in the Port Alfred area.”
