AN AUSTRALIAN swimmer survived a great white shark attack by poking the creature in the eyes while it was dragging him through the water.
Jason Cull, 37, who suffered severe cuts to one leg, was swimming off a beach on Australia’s southwest coast on Sunday when the four-metre shark attacked.
“Initially I thought it was a dolphin,” he told The Australian newspaper. “I just remember being dragged along backwards. I was trying to feel its gills but I found its eye and I stuck my finger in and that’s when it let go.”
