James Grant was spearfishing off the coast of New Zealand's South Island when he was attacked by a shark.
Grant was only in about 2 meters of water and didn't see the shark when it attacked. Luckily, he already had his diving knife in his hand and was swift to fend off the predator.
Stabbing the shark multiple times, he made it to shore as fast as possible. He didn't realize he'd been bitten until he took off his wetsuit. When he called to his friends, they didn't believe him: "...There's no way he's been bitten, he's got to be taking the piss," said fellow spearfisher Mackley Lindsay.
