Man survives shark attack while spearfishing in Bahamas

(WHDH) — A man spearfishing in the Bahamas is lucky to be alive after a shark bit him in the head.

Will Krause says he never saw the shark but felt the impact and knew something was seriously wrong.

His friend, a former MIT student, captured the whole incident on camera.

“The shark came and bit me in the back of the head and neck, took one bite and a shake and swam off,” he said. “The impact hurt. I did remember hearing the crunch of my head. I actually thought the boat ran me over. I didn’t see a shark, so it hit me from behind, totally caught me off guard.”

His friends rushed in and pulled him to safety.
