Shark attack story in the DAILY MAIL
Mum Frankie Gonsalves was seriously injured when she was bitten by a Galapagos shark while snorkelling off Ascension Island
Her life was saved by husband Dean who punched shark on the nose four times until it retreated
Her blood then attracted a shoal of piranha
Luckily bystanders pulled her out before piranha attacked
Mum of two Frankie Gonsalves and husband Dean contacted Featureworld to tell their astonishing story after she was attacked by a shark.
I placed their incredible story in the Daily Mail newspaper and they will shortly be appearing in a top women’s magazine.
Frankie was attacked by a shark as she snorkelled on holiday and although the incident was widely reported, this was the first time she had spoken of her terrifying attack and the aftermath.
The senior social worke says she owes her life to quick thinking hubby Dean, 40 – a company director – who punched the shark after it took a chunk out of her ankle.
Dean, who was snorkelling nearby saw the shark with her leg in its jaws. He dived under the water and punched the shark on its head. It released its teeth allowing her to swim to safety.
The shark then came back to attack Dean a further three times. Each time he punched it before exhausted he managed to struggle to the shore.
Fortunately a bystander was a trained first aider – he had dragged Frankie out of the water, which by now was full of piranha, and stemmed the bleeding.
The terrifying attack happened in April 2017 as the couple holidayed with their two children on Ascension Island.
Now back in the UK and recovering the couple tell how the nightmare unfolded in front of their two children – and how Frankie almost lost her leg.
She has needed further surgery but miraculously is expecting a full recovery, albeit she will be scarred for life.
