all right. back now at 7:41 with "gma" survival week. just this past weekend, a teenage surfer was badly bitten by a shark in south florida. he was lucky to be saved by
7:42 am
other people on the beach. but survivingen the attack is not just about luck. as abc's matt gutman is here to tell us about, this time with an incredible demonstration to boot. good morning, matt. >> reporter: good morning, lara. this time i had to jump into the deep end to fend off sharks, my hands and feet. we had a number of safety precautions, including chain mail armor. this is probably one of the most terrifying experiences i have ever had. >> get out of the water! shark! >> reporter: this is the terrifying moment a great white attacked swimmer steve robles just off a beach during an early morning swim. >> you could hear it crunch. i was staring at the shark eyeball to eyeball. >> reporter: he says he jabbed the narc's nose hard and it let go of him. >> it was the most frightening
7:43 am
thing anyone could ever experience. >> reporter: there were 51 shark attacks on u.s. coasts last year, but according to this survival expert, surviving a shark attack isn't as impossible as it may seem. to show us, he took me to an especially shark-ridden part of the bahamas. where the natural beauty belied what's beneath. first, a quick scuba dive to get our bearings. >> there are sharks everywhere. >> reporter: we're in a frenzy of reef sharks, up to ten feet long. less aggressive and with a less lethal bite than great whites. >> we're right in the middle of it. >> reporter: we're about to do what they tell you not to do. float on the surface, most dangerous to humans. to the sharks, our flapping hands, legs and feet look like food. >> everything down there is going to smell like food, including you. >> reporter: we are simulating a person dumped in shark-infested water.
7:44 am
the trick is, we have chain mail to protect us. don't try this at home. >> ready? >> reporter: no. >> let's go. >> reporter: gallantly, i let terry go first. ah! i just landed on one. they are just bumping us right and left. and in the midst of this school of 25 sharks that my lesson begins. whether it's great whites or reef sharks, terry says the advice is the same. >> let's try to get back to back, and link arms. now we have each other for protection. we're on top of the water thrashing, that's potential food. >> right. >> they come in, and it becomes an attack -- >> reporter: yep. >> you're going to have to strike them, quick, fast, punch down. that way, you guarantee you're going hit them somewhere around here. they don't like that. >> reporter: so it's the eyes, the gills, the nose, the snout. >> exactly. all the sensory stuff is concentrated there. all you can do is fight and let
7:45 am
them know, i'm not going down easy. >> reporter: within minutes, the sharks are all over us. and it's a fight to keep them off. the best thing for me right now is fending them off with my feet. kind of like that one. >> yeah, do the best you can to keep them off of you. >> reporter: but it doesn't always work. the sharks keep coming. you're saying, good morning, america. watch this. one going right over my head. let's get in. and that was enough for me. >> that was? >> yeah. >> sorry, that was enough for you? >> that was enough for me. sharks don't eat people. most of the attacks we have seen are cases of mistaken identity. sharks often mistake hands and feet. they don't have hands, so they use their mouths to taste things. so, you know, what's remarkable about this is that they didn't bite us. we were in the water. we gave them every opportunity to chomp on us. and they're smart enough to know -- laughter here -- smart
7:46 am
enough to know the difference between fish and man. >> was there a point where you went, what am i doing? >> the entire endeavor was. i let him go first. i was terrified. >> you did it. >> i'm afraid what you're going to teach us to survive next. >> plane crashes and boat crashes are next. a caveat here. we did not hurt the sharks. just pushing them off. >> you volunteered for this assignment, right? >> i did. i chose it. may be the last one, though. >> you and ginger should do something together. i think you would make a great team. >> i think so, too. >> you win the insane anchor of the month. that was -- that was very impressive. thank you. if i ever find myself in that situation, i now know what to do. i'll be thinking of you. all right, everybody. and coming up, a powerful rendition of the national anthem bringing down the house at "monday night football." stick around.

wanted to share a story with you that is extremely close to my heart. i first met sean clifton and mark walton, two elite delta forces three years ago in a car on the way to walter reed medical center. just a chance meeting. and i found their story to be incredible. i hope their story of courage and friendship will touch you as much as it touched me. two american heros. their friendship borne on the battlefield. for army sergeants mark warner and sean clifton, this is a reunion that almost didn't happen. i met with them just steps from the 9/11 memorial to honor the ones they were fighting for when their lives were changed forever. the special forces unit brought you two together. that's how you met. >> yes. >> was it an immediate friendship? >> we were on the same specialty cell within our team. it just worked out perfectly. >> worked together, eat together, train together. and just come -- you know what
8:23 am
the next person's doing. >> reporter: the elite green berets, protecting the most dangerous corners in the world. on may 31, 2009, it was one mission that challenged their faith and sealed their bond. where were you on that day? >> we were in southeast afghanistan. ghazni province. >> we had targeted a taliban commander. we knew that he was there that day. and we rolled out. and we ran into a hornet's nest, really. >> mm-hmm. >> around the corner, that's when sean kicked the door and the guy, point blank -- just took his a.k. and shot right up sean. he was hit. i saw his eyes, they were just big. help, i need help. and he collapsed down. >> reporter: sean, gravely wounded, visions of his wife and sons flashing before him. >> i'm just thinking. lord, let this be a dream. please, lord, let this be a dream. but you know visions of those boys and trying to fight back to
8:24 am
get back home to them and to my wife, to my family. >> reporter: bleeding out, sean approaches his final breath. that's when mark, a medic, takes charge. diving through bullets to treat sean's wounds. convincing a medevac pilot to defy his orders and land inside the firefight. >> mark's my hero, as well as a lot of the guy on the team. >> there was a higher power that day looking out for us. as much fire power on the battle field that day. and the wounds that sean had. >> reporter: the mission over, sean's personal battle just beginning. over 20 surgeries in five months. his room at walter reed medical center, the new fox hole. >> in our minds, we think we're these big, bad green berets. to be at the point where i can't even sit up in my own bed under my own power, that was a humbling e experience. >> reporter: from mark's courage and action, to sean finding his
8:25 am
strength. ending at a marathon finish line. >> i took the next nine months plus and went from kicking the walker away, dropping the cane, and walking. and jogging. and then, october, 2010, i finished that marathon. that was a big deal. >> never quit. an old saying from day one selection. never quit. >> it wasn't just for me. these guys risked their lives. so, you know, the best thing i can do is get back up on my feet. and that's my thank you back to them. >> reporter: and so on this veterans day, we salute sean and mark. brothers in battle. who like all our veterans have taught us so much about what friendship and courage and resilience really mean. what an incredible story. i met these guys. never forgot the story. and three years later, happy to be able to do this piece on them. mark earned a silver star, and sean earned a purple heart and a bronze star. and i have to give a shoutout to
