A man has spoken of a shark attack he miraculously survived in 1968.
Frank Logan was with friends at Bodega Rock in Sonoma County, California when the terrifying accident happened.
Only 25 years old at the time, he managed to fend off the predator by playing dead.
Now he has 18 tooth wounds on his chest and will never forget the horrific events of 54 years ago…
Man survives deadly shark attack
As reported by The Sun, Frank was out hunting sea snails with friends in the 60s when a shark bit his upper body.
The animal dragged him 16ft into the ocean and his friends Floyd Blanchard and Bill Posten were left near shore.
“I felt something go down my legs like a giant vice, then crushing pain in my back and chest,” he reportedly said.
When all hope of survival was nearly lost, the man decided to play dead and let his body relax in hopes of fending off the hungry shark.
Fortunately, the fish let go of its body and swam away, but Frank’s injuries were life threatening.
He was left with 18 tooth injuries
The man’s friends pulled him out of the water and took him to the nearest hospital where he was treated.
He had 18 dental holes in his chest and required more than 200 stitches to close the wounds.
His injuries suggested the shark was around 13ft long, but the terrifying accident didn’t put him off.
In fact, he would have continued to dive all his life and would not be afraid of the sea.
Child survives shark attack by punching him
Earlier this month, an eight-year-old boy survived a horrific shark attack by kicking him in the head.
Napat Chaiyarak Christenko was swimming in Phuket, Thailand with his father when a shark started attacking his leg.
The child reached underwater and hit him on the head, causing the shark to let go of his calf and swim away.
He was rushed to Bangkok Hospital in Phuket for treatment and made a full recovery.
However, he described it as “the most painful thing ever” and said: “I hit him to get him to leave me alone.”
Experts suggest he was attacked by either a blacktip reef shark or a bull shark, both of which are common in the Andaman Sea.
