Fisherman in water with sharks - level 3, A12
Terrifying scenes off the coast of Western Australia as a fisherman becomes stranded in shark-infested waters.
The 49-year-old was spotted being circled by sharks, at least one of which was a hammerhead, by a news crew in a helicopter.
The man who’d been treading water for 20 hours after his boat sank was eventually pulled to safety and flown to hospital in Perth.
He’d been on a trip with two other men, one of whom was later found unconscious and did not survive, with the other still being reported as missing.
Interesting words: stranded (stopped or stuck), infested (full of something), hammerhead (type of shark with a head like a hammer), tread water (stay in deep water by moving your legs).
