An Australian Surfer Mick Fanning has escaped a shark attack during a competition in South Africa. CNN reports that two sharks attacked Fanning’s surf board and knocked him off.
Fanning told Fox Sports, “I was just sitting there and I felt something just get stuck in my leg rope, and I was kicking trying to get it away, I just saw fins. I was waiting for the teeth.”
The competition, in which Fanning is the defending champion was subsequently called off.
