Surfer fights off shark attack on live TV


An Australian surfer remarkably survived a
shark attack unscathed after fighting off the circling predator with his fists. Mick Fanning was preparing for Sunday’s final
of the World Surfing League’s J-Bay Open, at Jeffrey’s Bay in South Africa when the
unidentified species of shark surfaced next to him, knocking him off his board. But the three-times world surfing champion
managed to escape after punching the shark away. UP The incident was broadcast on live television
and led to the postponement of the event. South Africa’s waters are among the most shark-infested
in the world. A swimmer was killed by a Great White close
to Jeffrey’s Bay in 2013.

    U people are all idiots. This was not an attack. The Sharks tail fin is what surfaced and it got tangled on his surf boards string. The shark was startled and went downwards with the sting attached (with the surfer) once the string got off the shark the surfer was ok. If the shark wanted to attack it would have went for a full on bite and would have sent the surfer upwards in the air. DO NOT BELIEVE THE MEDIA.
