I can't imagine getting attacked by a shark and I also can't imagine having to walk to find help!!
A 29 year old was surfing in Australia and
“I was sitting on my board when I felt a hit on my left side – it was like being hit by a truck,” he said in a letter thanking the emergency services.
“It bit me around my back, buttock and elbow and took a chunk out of my board. I got a glimpse of the shark as it let go and disappeared.
“I still had hold of my board and paddled into the beach. I walked up to the car park and yelled out to another surfer who was about to go in."
That's when he had to walk a bit to find someone to help him. A stranger drove him to the hospital.
“I’m feeling incredibly lucky and grateful and I’m optimistic I’ll make a full recovery.”
