A surfing competition in South Africa was canceled after three-time world champion surfer Mick Fanning fought off a shark attack on live television!
This happened at the beginning of the competition and THANKFULLY Mick escaped with another competitor, Julian Wilson, obviously shaken up but no one got hurt.
The World Surf League canceled the competition and said, “We are incredibly grateful that no one was seriously injured today. Mick’s composure and quick acting in the face of a terrifying situation was nothing short of heroic, and the rapid response of our Water Safety personnel was commendable — they are truly world class at what they do.”
That is INSANE! Glad everyone is ok though!
