As a result, emergency services were called to a private pier in Elizabeth Bay, a Sydney suburb, on Monday night and found 29-year-old Lauren O’Neill with a serious leg injury.

Residents of the region provided first aid until the police arrived at the scene. Neighbor Michael Porter told the Sydney Morning Herald (SMH) he heard a cry for help outside his window.

He looked out and saw the swimmer hanging from a pier ladder. “She was trying to get in and behind her was her leg, which was completely open and full of blood,” Porter said.

It’s worth remembering that although shark sightings along Sydney’s ocean beaches are common, attacks are rare events.
