Shark sur­vives punch from surfer

The Times (South Africa) - - The Things You Need To Know Today -

A young Bri­tish doc­tor punched a shark that at­tacked him as he surfed off Aus­tralia’s east coast, es­cap­ing with bites to his shoul­der and arm.

Char­lie Fry, 25, said: “I saw a shark’s head come out of the wa­ter, with its teeth, and I just punched it in the face. It was pure adren­a­line, like: ‘You’re about to be eaten alive by a shark.’ Ev­ery­thing slowed down, like: ‘Get on your board and surf’.”
