Surfer Mick Fanning Had Second Shark Encounter His First Time Back In The Water!

Surfer Mick Fanning Encounters Second Shark A Week After Attack!.

The Gold Coast surf star reveals in an exclusive interview with 60 Minutes tonight that he’s been having nightmares and needs help.

Incredibly, in his first surf since the incident – at Hastings Point south of the Gold Coast – Mick Fanning was chased from the water by another shark. Video footage shows him frantically scrambling aboard a jetski and being whisked to the beach.

The program also shows Fanning’s emotional reunion with his mother, Liz, who feared she had lost a second son.

Mick’s older brother and idol, Sean, was killed in a car crash 17 years ago.

Meanwhile, Evans Head shark victim Craig Ison, 52, remained in intensive care in Gold Coast University Hospital after hours of surgery to repair wounds he suffered when he was mauled by a suspected great white while surfing on Friday.

A hospital spokeswoman said Mr Ison’s condition was serious but stable after he was flown from Lismore Base Hospital to the Gold Coast.

Fearing recent shark attacks could hurt tourism, northern NSW councils are investigating strategies, including aerial surveillance and the development of a shark-spotting app to keep beachgoers informed of sightings.

Several beaches across the border were closed yesterday amid safety concerns after shark sightings.
