Overview

You're diving off a naval base in Sydney Harbour when you come eye to beady eye with a 3-metre-long bull shark. It mauls your right arm and leg beyond repair, leaving you fighting for your life. How do you deal with the unthinkable?

These three words - the mantra of the Australian Army-always resonated with Paul de Geldef. But they would take on new meaning after he was attacked by a shark in February 2009. Paul lost two limbs, and his career as an elite navy clearance diver, was flung into jeopardy. Drawing on everything his eventful life had taught him - from his wild teen years to his haul up the ranks of the defence forces - Paul left nothing to, chance in his recovery. He fought through excruciating pain, smashing challenge after challenge, and amazing the medical staff with his will to succeed. His inspiring story takes 'never say die' to a whole new level.
