Jackass star Sean McInerney has been attacked by a shark while wakeboarding in infested waters.

The TV star was filming for Discovery Channel’s Shark Week when he took part in the stunt.

Video from the incident shows McInerney falling into the water before a shark is seen thrashing about.

He was pulled to safety and treated for injures to his hand, which included artery and tendon damage, according to The Sun.

Photos later posted to Twitter by co-star Steve-O showed the extent of McInerney’s injuries.

“He would be f**king dead if they didn’t dive on him as fast as they did,” Steve-O said.

“Jesus, he got wrecked by a shark…for a Shark Week episode.”

The incident occurred after the team launched McInerney, who was on a wakeboard, from a ramp.

But the stunt went downhill when he failed to make the landing and fell into the water.

“I definitely got a degree in shark college there,” McInerney said.

“I knew there was a chance I was going to get bit by a shark, but I didn’t think it was going to happen.

“I don’t blame the sharks at all. I mean, I was in their living room, and it was dinnertime.”
