Novice surfer socks shark on nose to es­cape at­tack

Las Vegas Review-Journal - - WORLD -

A novice surfer mas­tered a pro’s move on the first try: He punched a shark on the nose to es­cape its jaws.

The at­tack off the Australian coast left Char­lie Fry with su­per­fi­cial punc­ture wounds on his right shoul­der and up­per arm.

A Bri­tish doc­tor who ar­rived in Aus­tralia two months ago to work, Fry said Tues­day he wasn’t con­scious of his in­jured and bleed­ing arm un­til he reached the shore.
