He wrote:

“3 months ago (Aug 20, 2018), I survived a shark attack to the head while spearfishing in the Abacos.

I was 25 feet below the surface when the 6-7 ft Reef Shark struck the back of my head & neck. I miraculously escaped with several stitches, some gnarly scars, & a viral GoPro video.”

The video shows the shark swim up to Krause and bite him on the back of the head before quickly swimming away.
