British tourist grabbed shark by tail to save bathers
Press AssociationA Briton on holiday in Australia grabbed a shark by its tail and tried to drag it away from people playing at the edge of the sea.
The man, named as Paul Marshallsea, was on a beach north of Brisbane in Queensland when a siren was sounded to warn of a shark in the water.
Marshallsea, 62, a grandfather from Merthyr Tydfil in south Wales, ran to the shoreline and grabbed the shark by the tail.
The incident was captured by a local news crew, and footage shown on Sky News showed him wrestling the fish in the shallows and trying to guide it towards deeper water.
