Woman fights off Great White shark!
An Australian woman has survived an attack by a Great White shark by beating it with a paddle after it knocked her off a surf ski.
Linda Whitehurst, the shark's intended victim, said: "I thought this is it, he is going to grab my leg. I had my blade (paddle) and I just kept punching, punching, punching."
She suffered only small lacerations on her right arm in the fight with the 8ft-long shark.
She then managed to scrambling back onto her surf ski and paddling to shore at Byron Bay's famous surfing beach, "The Pass", on Australia's east coast.
