Brian Mannix: Singer Admitted To Hospital Following Shark Attack On Sam Newman's Boat

He was on Sam Newman’s boat with Warwick Capper and Ricky Nixon when he got into strife.

Posting to Instagram on Sunday, the 60-year-old said: “It’s either Sam Newman’s boat or the bloody sharks!”

“Thanks to Ricky Nixon and Warwick Capper for jumping in & helping me.”

“They are just gonna keep me in overnight, cos they reckon I’m sexy?”

Speaking on Monday, Mannix told The Herald Sun he “didn’t even know how it happened.”

“I went swimming and somehow I cut my arm up and the Wiz (Warwick Capper) jumped in and got me,” he said.

“Every time I go on the boat I end up coming home covered in blood.”

Newman joked that it was “uncanny” how often Mannix got into trouble on his boat.

“He came back with a reasonable gash and bleeding profusely,” Newman said.

“If he ever comes again I’m just going to let the coast guard know to have an ambulance follow us.”

“People probably jump to conclusions that they’re affected by whatever.”

“They are a loud and unruly crowd but very well behaved.”

“I got the first aid kit out and bandaged him and I’d like the clips back.”

Last December Mannix ended up with an injured nose after taking a fall on Newman’s yacht.

The yacht was hit by wild weather, leaving Mannix with a nasty gash across the bridge of his nose.

We can only imagine what body part Mannix will injure on his next adventure on the high seas.
