David Pickering Punches Tiger Shark To Escape Attack, Australia


A snorkeller has told how he punched a tiger shark in the face to escape after it sank its teeth into his arm in Western Australia.

David Pickering battled with the predator as two children and their mother, also in the group, watched in horror.

He suffered deep cuts to his arm during the attack in Coral Bay - the third in the country this month.
