A 10-year-old boy in New Caledonia has been severely injured in a shark attack.
The child was swimming with his sister off a boat in a central Noumea bay on Saturday when he was mauled by the shark.
The boy was taken to hospital where he is fighting for his life.
Reports say he lost a leg and is in an induced coma.
The three-and-a-half-metre long bull shark was identified and destroyed
