A professional surfer named Mick Fanning survived a shark attack on live TV on Sunday. It happened at a tournament in South Africa. The camera happened to be on him while he was waiting for a wave, and you could clearly see the shark’s fin come out of the water. Then there was a lot of splashing, and it looked like the shark pulled him under.
Luckily the shark didn’t actually bite him . . . it got caught on the leash attached to his board and snapped it. Then it swam off after he punched it in the back.
