[WATCH} Shark attacks surfer live on TV

Published On July 20, 2015 | By Morgan Ryan | Mornings

A professional surfer named Mick Fanning was attacked by a shark on live TV at a tournament in South Africa on Sunday. The camera was on him while he was waiting for a wave, and you could see the shark’s fin come out of the water. Then there was a lot of splashing, and it looked like it pulled him under. But he punched it in the back and it swam off.

 

The shark didn’t bite him . . . it got caught on the rope that was attached to his board and snapped it. Not surprisingly, tournament officials decided to cancel the rest of the tournament.
