Man bitten in head by shark – and survives

`A diver has survived a terrifying attack by a shark, which seized him first by the head and then bit into his torso before he fought free of the predator. [..]

The shark seized Mr Nerhus by the head, crushing his face mask inwards and breaking his nose, said friend and fellow diver Dennis Luobikis.

“He was actually bitten by the head down, the shark swallowed his head,” Mr Luobikis said.

Taking a second bite, the white pointer clenched its jaws around his torso, tearing deep lacerations in either side of his body.’
