From the Scotsman:
A SNORKELER attacked by a shark off Australiaís east coast swam to shore with the predator still gripping his leg and then drove to a lifesaversí club to have it removed. Luke Tresoglavic, 22, was snorkelling on a reef about 330 yards off Caves Beach, 75 miles north of Sydney, Australia, when a wobbegong shark bit him just below the kneecap and held on. “I just realised I had to swim in like that, hanging on to it,” Mr Tresoglavic said yesterday. “Once I got to shore, a couple of people tried to help me, but I could not remove it. It was stuck there, so I got up into my car and drove to the clubhouse, and luckily the guys down there had a clue what to do.”
Those Australians are a tough lot.
