Let’s jump right into it.
10:- Mick Fanning
The surfer successfully evaded a shark attack during a competition run off South Africa’s East Cape on Sunday.
As Australian surfer Mick Fanning prepared to ride a wave at the World Surf League’s J-Bay Open Sunday in Jeffreys Bay, a big shark “appears out of nowhere,”
The shark seemed pretty intent on hitting the board, which probably worked in the surfer's favor,” says Skomal. “He got away, unharmed, which is pretty incredible.”
Fanning also appeared to stay calm and “did everything right” during the brief attack, says Skomal. “It looked like he put the board between him and the shark, he avoided the mouth, he struck the shark, and then moved away.” Within moments Fanning was picked up by rescuers on jetskis.
Sharks are known to respect size and power in the water, and experts say the best thing to do if you are approached by a shark - punches it hard. Aim for the nose, the eyes, or the gills, which are particularly sensitive, if possible. Fanning hit the animal in the back, which also seemed to do the trick.
The shark that went for Fanning’s board was most likely a great white, says Skomal, who studies the big fish. It’s hard to tell in the split seconds of the video how large the animal is, and whether it is full-grown, but it’s clearly “not a dinky fish,” he says.
9:- A Kayaker
Gene Mace captured the moment a kayaker was attacked by a great white shark in Monterey Bay, California, on March 18.
Gene Mace and his wife were out in Monterey Bay when he noticed a man had been flipped from his kayak. Mace took out his camera and saw that the man was under attack by a great white shark.
Mace continues to capture the attack as he tells his wife to call for help. His wife can be heard speaking to authorities over the phone. The couple watches helplessly as the kayaker tries to swim away from the great white.
After a few minutes, a boat approaches the kayaker and a man, Lt. Cmdr. Kyle Franklin, can be seen trying to help the kayaker up to the small sailboat.
Franklin was out sailing with his wife and daughter when he saw the kayaker frantically swimming away from the shark.
The video cuts off when Franklin approaches the kayaker, but a 29-foot Coast Guard Response Boat, stationed in Monterey Harbor, later arrived to rescue the kayaker, who was too tired and cold to get on the vessel on his own.
8:- Sean Pollard
BUNBURY shark attack survivor Sean Pollard says he feels lucky to be alive after his miracle escape from a white pointer near Esperance.
The keen surfer and former South Bunbury footballer have broken his silence after he was bitten on both legs in the shark’s first charge, then fended off the animal with his board when it came back a second time as he surfed off remote Kelp Beds, east of Esperance, on October 2.
The 23-year-old lost his left arm and both hands when the shark charged a third time and “went in for the kill”.
In the aftermath of the attack, he needed seven blood transfusions amounting to three liters of blood. “I was pretty lucky to get to hospital within an hour of the attack” he recalls. It took over 150 stitches to close the wounds that had threatened his life, and he spent weeks in the hospital.
The former surfer turned to snowboard after a trip with friends to Mt Buller in Victoria in September 2015.
After quickly learning to snowboard, he went to Canada on a three-week trip where by chance he met the Canadian para snowboard coach, who encouraged Sean to take up the sport.
