A baby great white shark has been rescued after washing up on Manly Beach in Sydney’s north.
The shark washed ashore around midday and was unable to return to the water, floundering in the shallows.
Several members of the public tried a number of times to help the shark back into the water but were unsuccessful.
The shark appeared to have suffered injuries to its lower mouth and was moved into Manly’s Fairy Bower pool.
