Craig Ison to speak about shark attack ordeal

EVANS Head shark attack victim Craig Ison will speak about his ordeal on Channel Ten's The Project tonight.

Mr Ison was attacked by a great white shark while surfing at Evans Head on July 31.

Moderator of the Craig Ison Recovery Fund Facebook page, Angie Mediero, said Mr Ison was approached by several media outlets for an on-camera interview.

"He told them the ONLY circumstance in which he would give an interview is if the channel donated $5000 to the emergency services who saved his life," she wrote on the Facebook page.

"He is just so incredibly grateful to be alive that he wanted all the thanks and donation to go to those who saved him.

"This makes me even more determined to ensure that we get some donations here toward his recovery."

The show will air at 6.30pm tonight.
