An Australian fisherman has been attacked by a shark on his boat deck.
The man had been fishing for tuna off Australia's east coast when he reeled in the 10 foot Mako Shark.
It's thought the 20-year-old deckhand stepped on the shark's tail, causing it to whip around and latch onto his calf.
The shark had his leg clamped in its jaws for several minutes until other deckhands cut its head off.
