British tourist pulls shark away from Australia beach

Video uploaded by IBTimesUK on 21. January 2013 : A British holidaymaker grappled with a shark in shallow waters off a busy beach as children frolicked in the sea. Paul Marshallsea wrestled with the 6ft fish when it swam towards beachgoers on Bulcock Beach on Australia’s Queensland coast. The 62-year-old went into action when an alarm rang that a shark was in the water. Marshallsea, a grandfather, told WalesOnline: “We got hold of his tail and pulled with all our might to get the shark back into deep enough water so that the poor thing could survive. “While I was pulling the shark by the tail back into deeper water her 2ft-long babies were swimming through my legs. They must have got lost and marooned by the shallow sandbanks and got beached. “But the trouble was when we got the shark to just over knee deep it then turned on us and just missed me with a bite which was a fraction away from my leg.
