Hervey Bay jetskiers have close call with shark

A HERVEY BAY couple had a near miss when a bronze whaler shark charged their jet ski, narrowly missing the woman's leg.

The couple were exploring a popular tourist spot off the western side of Fraser Island on Sunday morning when they saw the shark in the water, the Daily Mail reports.

The video posted by Viralhog shows the jetskiers getting close to the shark as they film it on GoPro.
