Mick Fanning was hit by a shark in the final heat of the J-Bay Open in South Africa, but he came out unscathed. He said the shark got tangled in his leash, and he threw a few punches, but the water patrol was quick to scoop him up before the attack progressed any further.
Apparently there are rules for this situation, and the contest was called off. We are still waiting to hear from the commissioner how this event will wrap up.
We’re happy you’re safe Mick!
