Shark attacks Australian surfer during competition


Australian surfer Mick Fanning can count himself lucky to be alive after suffering a shark attack during a surfing competition in Jeffrey’s Bay, South Africa. The attack was caught live on television which was screening the competition. Fanning was seen leaving the water uninjured after he warded off the shark by giving it a fist blow on its back.

The shark was seen attacking Fanning from behind as he sat on his surf-board.

“I was sitting on my board when I felt something brushing against my legs. I kicked out to get rid of whatever it was” said Fanning, who looked very upset and could hardly find the words to describe his lucky escape.
