A teenage girl has recalled how she survived a terrifying shark attack that left her with gruesome injuries that required over 160 stitches. 

Brooklyn Sauer, 14, was bitten by a shark 200metres from the shoreline at Nielson Beach at Bargara, in Queensland's Bundaberg region, on March 15. 

Ms Sauer had been visiting her local beach with a friend for a quick dip after school when she suddenly felt herself being pulled underwater. 

She received a single bite to her torso and up to 40 puncture wounds on her back, abdomen and thighs which required more than 160 stitches. 

Her father Brett Sauer then received a phone call no parent ever wants to receive.
