Two shark attacks were reported on the same stretch of Long Island beach on Wednesday.

Surfer Shawn Donnely, 41, was knocked off his board when a sand Tiger shark attacked off the coast of Smith Point Beach on July 13.

He was left with a four-inch gash wound to the leg.

Donnely revealed he punched the shark to fend off the beast.

He told NBC New York: “It got my left calf and knocked me off my board… when I was falling off my board, I saw the fin and its back.”

Donnely managed to ride a wave that returned him to shore.

Donnely was attacked at Smith Point - just days after John Mullins was mauled by a tiger shark.

He was participating in lifeguard training on Fire Island on July 7 when the beast attacked.
