Correction: Due to earlier misleading information from media contacts, we made an error relating to the type of craft.
A kayaker has been attacked by a shark off a Moffat Beach on the Sunshine Coast.
The kayaker is believed to have been paddling about one-and-a-half kilometres off the coast of Moffat Beach when the shark attacked the kayak.
The man's kayak was then overturned and although he managed to right his craft, the kayak was taking on water with the shark circling nearby.
Surf Life Saving Queensland said lifesavers rescued the man after he was knocked out of the kayak by the shark. The man managed to climb back onto the kayak and radio for help before . Local authorities have reported that a 4-4.5 metre tiger shark was responsible for the attack.
A Queensland coast guard team has been dispatched in an attempt to locate the shark.
