World Champion Surfer Is One Surf Away From Winning Another Title. Suddenly, Disaster Strikes

Professional surfer and 3 times World Champion Mick Fanning was waiting his turn to show his skills in the JBayOpen championships. It was a sunny day with perfect conditions for a good day of surfing. Suddenly, he feels something tugging at his surf board and in a split second, he’s underwater…

Watch this heart stopping video that was all captured live:

In a just a split second, Mick was dragged under the water by a great white shark. Mick thrashed around to get away from the shark and managed to punch the shark to get away. Thankfully, he is ok with no significant injuries. This is certainly one of the scariest and craziest scenes to play out during a live sports broadcast!
