A man saved his wife’s life during a shark attack by punching it on the nose. The couple were surfing off the New South Wales coast when the shark bit Chantelle Doyle’s leg. Her husband Mark Rapley bravely leapt on the animal’s back and kept on hitting it until it let go. Chantelle was flown to hospital, where she had surgery on her injuries. There have been six fatal shark attacks in Australia this year.
