MAN STUFF: New Zealand doctor fights off shark, stitches up wounds, goes for a beer

After being attacked by a shark, a New Zealand doctor reportedly fought back with a knife, stitched his wound closed on the beach, then hit the pub for a beer before driving himself to the hospital on the weekend.

James Grant was spearfishing with friends when he felt a tug on his leg, he told the website news.com.au.
