Paul de Gelder

Quite Franklin

Paul de Gelder was an Australian Royal Navy Clearance Diver participating in a counter terrorism exercise in Sydney Harbor when he was attacked by a 12 foot Bull Shark. The attack ultimately took Paul's right hand and right leg... and some time figuring out life. He did not want fear from that experience to determine his path, so he immediately put himself back in the ocean. Today Paul works as a co-host on Discovery Channel's Shark Week, frequently swimming with sharks if not feeding them by hand.
