A lotto was true

Brit doc­tor fights off 6ft beast

A WOMAN who won the lotto and lost weight af­ter a medium said she would come into money and slim down has be­come a psy­chic.

San­dra Mur­rell, 36, vis­ited the medium in 2011.

She was told she would re­ceive a lot of money and shed the pounds, and two years later San­dra won £70,000 on the lotto and then lost three stone with Slim­ming World.

San­dra, from Red­ditch, Worcs, said: “The read­ing I re­ceived has come com­pletely true. The medium said I’d be do­ing what she was do­ing.”

A SURFER es­caped the killer jaws of a great white shark when he punched it on its nose.

Brit Char­lie Fry had been in Aus­tralia for two weeks when he headed for Avoca Beach, 60 miles from Syd­ney.

The 25-year-old was in the wa­ter with three doc­tor pals when he felt a bump on his arm. Look­ing round, he came face-to-face with the six-foot shark.

As the beast lunged, Char­lie re­mem­bered a YouTube video of ex­world champ surfer Mick Fan­ning es­cap­ing a shark by punch­ing it.

Char­lie, from Bury St Ed­munds, Suf­folk, said: “I got this mas­sive thud on my right-hand side, it com­pletely blind­sided me. I thought it was a friend goof­ing around. I turned and I saw this shark come out of the wa­ter and breach its head.

“I just punched it in the face with my left hand and then man­aged to scram­ble back on my board, shout at my friends and luck­ily a wave came, so I surfed the wave in.”

Char­lie made it to the coast and was driven to Gos­ford Hos­pi­tal where he worked with his mates. He said he did not know the breed, but that a great white had been spot­ted in the area.

Char­lie added: “All I’m think­ing was: ‘I’m about to die. I’m lit­er­ally about to die.’

“So I thought: ‘Get in as fast as pos­si­ble, ride the wave for as long as you can and then just start pad­dling for your life.’

“When it hap­pened, I was like, just do what Mick did. Just punch it in the nose.”
