Lucky escape

A surfer has had a lucky escape after a shark took a bite out of his board while he was in the sea off the coast of Australia.

Stephen King was taking an early morning surf near the village of Angourie in New South Wales when the shark swam up and lunged at him. He quickly pulled his legs out of the water, saving them from major injury, and escaped with only minor puncture wounds. His board fared less well, ending up with a large chunk out of one side and in two pieces.

He has agreed to allow his board to be displayed in a local museum.
