I think this guy lucked out. Watching this video takes my breath away.
Notice at the end that he does a proper safety stop - while keeping an eye on the unsafety below.

Aggressive little bugger.

..Wow! Good thing that was just a little gray reef shark, instead of a bull or tiger, or he would of been in a world of hurt! I guess if you hunt you’ve put yourself on the menu down there!

I was worried he would spear his own leg trying to fend that shark off! He sure blew the slow assent.

...I’m guessing slowing down his ascent rate wasn’t top on his to-do list in the middle of that shark attack!

I was thinking that I hope the guy was ok in that he did ascend pretty quickly. It would have freaked me out too I guess. Maybe another reason i’ll stay clear of spearfishing.
