Surfer Mick Fanning was attacked by a Shark during competition at the J-Bay Open. The entire event and his rescue were captured during live TV.
This annual surfing competition takes place at Jeffrey’s Bay, Kouga, Eastern Cape, South Africa. It's known to be an area frequented by sharks. While there have been a number of attacks at the break itself in the past, nothing like this has ever happened during an event. This is another reminder of the dangers of surfing.
