Footage shows Manni in the sea holding up the fish before placing it onto the boat.
But just moments into showing off his catch, a shark leaps out of the water ands bit him before he is able to jump back on board.
Family friend Moe Alsayed can be heard crying out as the beast locks its jaws onto Manni’s chest.
Moe told 9News: “It was a shock. He just wanted to show me his beautiful coral trout he had caught.
“As I was capturing it, this shark lunged at him.”
Manni added: “I caught this huge trout and I just wanted to show it on TikTok.
“I went in the water, I was holding the trout then a huge shark attacked me.”
Luckily, Manni wasn’t badly hurt from the bite and the shark quickly disappeared.
Despite his ordeal, the young fisherman has vowed to go back into the water.
His dad Radwan Alam added: “Anyone that’s dived knows that it’s a very common thing (seeing sharks) when you’re diving.
“Sharks are a very, very common occurrence.”
