British man tells of his terrifying five-mile swim for his life – pursued by a 13-foot shark

A British diver separated from his boat off the coast of Australia has said he was lucky to be alive after being forced to swim miles back to shore – shadowed by a large tiger shark.

The spear fisherman, John Craig, was underwater off Western Australia state Friday when his boat was swept away due to engine problems and strong currents.

He told the BBC that sharks gravitated towards him because stress had raised his heart rate.
