A pro surfer who was attacked by sharks Sunday could offer nothing but thanks for those present.
Australian Mick Fanning, the pro who fought off the sharks on live TV during a competition in South Africa, posted a moving Instagram photo of himself and opponent Julian Wilson, who was in the water as well, hugging after Fanning's escape. Fanning thanked Wilson for coming to his aid "like a warrior." He also thanked the announcers and water patrol for their quick reactions.
Fanning helped his situation by punching one of the sharks, which barely missed his leg and sliced the surfboard leash into pieces, according to reports. World Surf League officials canceled the J-Bay Open after the incident.
Here's footage of the attack and the aftermath:
