A 10-year-old boy survived a nightmarish shark attack by kicking the deadly animal on the nose on Makaha Beach Park in Hawaii.

Raymond Senensi was bodyboarding after school when a shark suddenly “popped out of nowhere”, sank its teeth into his leg and pulled the boy into the ocean. However, the schoolboy didn’t panic and fought back by kicking the predator on its snout.

Recalling the incident Raymond said: “I kicked it with this leg, and then I kicked him in the nose.” Fortunately, with the help of another bodyboarder and off-duty lifeguard the boy was taken to the beach, where he was rushed to hospital.

The shark was bigger than him. It’s the worst nightmare… but my baby is strong. I was hysterical, he wasn’t. He was telling me, ‘Mom, I’m going to be okay.’”
