A man took matters into his own hands when a great white shark attacked his wife.The couple were in Australia surfing this weekend when a 10 foot shark threw his wife off of her surf board. Mark Rapley tells us that he immediately went over to his wife to help her climb back on, when the shark bit her. Mark took his board and started punching the shark, until it let his wife go. Mark released a statement saying “When you see the mother of your child, and your support, everything that’s who you are, so you just react,” he told the channel. “Your body reacts to saying get off, get off. So you start punching it, you start thinking amazingly where to punch it and so you’re like, ‘I’ll just attack the eye,’ or whatever. You just start thinking differently.”
