DESCRIBED – Perth diver describes how he hid after shark attack

Bernie Williams, the scuba diver attacked by a shark in Perth on Sunday 15 January, tells The Sydney Morning Herald about the attack and how he hid in a crevice to escape the shark when it returned to attack him a second time.

A scuba diver injured in a shark attack off Perth says he wrenched his bleeding arm from the predator’s jaws and hid in a crevice on the ocean floor until he was rescued.

Despite his brush with a 3.5m white pointer (or Great White) yesterday (Sunday 15 January) Bernie Williams, of the northern Perth beachside suburb of Sorrento, vowed today to continue diving – with a shark repellant.

He believes it was the arrival of a diving companion with a shark repellant (shark pod) that chased away the great white.
