Survival Pro Is Almost Shark Bait

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – One survival expert nearly became shark bait, but he kept his cool for the cameras.

Former Navy SEAL Cade Courtley hosts Surviving Disaster, a new series on Spike TV premiering September 1 that teaches viewers how to survive scary situations like a fire, earthquake, or shark attack.

The simulated scenarios are so realistic, Courtley almost became fish food while filming a shark encounter.

He came face-to-face with a 15-foot tiger shark that rolled it’s eyes back – the classic sign of a shark that’s ready to attack.

Courtley hit the shark on the nose with a PVC pipe he happened to be holding, and although he was scared stiff, he played it off so his camera crew wouldn’t panic.

However, he admits his swim from the water to the boat was “really fast.”

He says freaking out is the worst thing to do in a survival situation, so after that “holy sht moment” passes, think fast.
