SYDNEY, Aug. 3 (Xinhua) -- An Australian professional surfer who fought off a great white shark while competing in South Africa last month has donated his television appearance fee to a fellow great white shark attack survivor.

The three-time world champion Mick Fanning from Queensland reportedly donated his 75,000-Australian dollar (54 Wholesale Utah Jazz Hats ,752 U.S. dollar) television appearance fee to fellow surfer Mathew Lee who was mauled by a great white shark on the northern New South Wales coast last month after recording an exclusive interview for local broadcaster Channel Nine.

Lee remains at the Gold Coast University Hospital after undergoing surgery on both legs after being mauled by a shark up to four meters long - according to eyewitness accounts - while body-boarding on the notorious coastal stretch, local media reported on Monday.

Fanning captivated global audiences after fighting off a suspected four-to-five meter great white shark during the final round of the Jeffreys Bay professional surfing event in South Africa last month, miraculously walking away unscathed. Fanning's ordeal was broadcast live at the time.

Channel Nine boss David Gyngell has also pledged a further 25, 000 Australian dollars (18.246 U.S. dollars) to Lee for ongoing treatment and rehabilitation, local media reported.

Fanning was hoping to visit Lee at his hospital bed for the program Wholesale Toronto Raptors Hats , however the meeting did not materialize as Lee underwent further surgery.

Craig Ison, another surfer who was attacked by a shark in the same area as Lee on Friday remains in an induced coma at the Gold Coast University Hospital following complications during his initial surgery.

During the exclusive interview, broadcast on Sunday night, Fanning revealed he is seeking professional help to overcome the traumatic event in South Africa.

"I guess when something like this happens, you're in your own mind Wholesale San Antonio Spurs Hats , and your mind can play tricks on you," Fanning said. "Your mind can ... turn shadows into demons, or stuff like that.

"And then you sort of have, like, different self-doubts Wholesale Sacramento Kings Hats , and like, why did I get away with that?

"I'm going to seek help, for sure. I think it's the only way to deal with it."

During his first surf back in the water, filmed for the exclusive television interview, the 34-year-old claimed he had another close call Wholesale Portland Trail Blazers Hats , spotting a fin while in the water off the New South Wales coast.

"We were sitting on there and then we sort of looked and we just saw a tiny little fin," Fanning said back on the beach.

"You wouldn't believe it yeah, I swear to God ... it was a full shark, hey."

CANBERRA, May 20 (Xinhua) -- Australia could use disillusioned fighters returning from Islamic State as mentors in intervention programs Wholesale Phoenix Suns Hats , a terrorism and deradicalization expert told Xinhua on Wednesday.

Dr. Clarke Jones from the Australian National University questioned whether the government's strong stance for those wishing to return from Islamic State was appropriate.

Prime Minister Tony Abbott said on Tuesday there was no place in society for those fighting with Islamic State or any other terrorist group.

If their passport has not already been canceled by authorities, those returning to Australia who are found guilty of working with a prescribed terrorist group face up to 25 years' prison.

"We need to take the fuel out of the fire," said Jones. "In other words, if there are some people who want to withdraw from the conflict -- and there will be many who disagree or have fallen foul of the Islamic State and want to get out -- we need to try take responsibility for them rather than allowing them to stay there and fight."

Jones, a visiting fellow who worked on national security programs with the federal government for 15 years Wholesale Philadelphia 76ers Hats , said by carefully examining each returning fighter on a case-by-case basis, some could be allowed back into the country.

"We say that as if it is an easy process but it is not," said Jones.

"We do need to judge on a case-by-case basis because there is a significant risk that some of those remain radical and might be used for ongoing terrorism."

"We also need to consider mental health."

On Tuesday, News Corp reported three Australian who had joined Islamic State in the Middle East had contacted the Australian government through lawyers to explore their options to return home.

One disillusioned jihadist, currently living in Turkey Wholesale Orlando Magic Hats , said the perception of Islamic State broadcast on professionally-edited propaganda was "a lot grander than what the reality really is."

Jones, who has studied prison and terrorism radicalization, said some disillusioned fighters could prove useful in domestic intervention activities aimed at destroying radicalization before it becomes dangerous.

"If we can bring them back, there is obviously a chance they have already disengaged with terrorism and they could provide some kind of mentoring role in intervention initiatives.

"If that was part of their conditions for coming back and they voluntarily wanted to do that, then we could possibly use them to persuade [other Australians to deradicalize]."

Jones acknowledged this approach would not be to the liking of all and would require some understanding.

The criminologist said he was not sure the government's threats that it will abandon its citizens overseas or jail them for long periods helped the cause.

"They want a deterrent message Wholesale Oklahoma City Thunder Hats ," he said. "I'm not so sure that it is the right way of doing it as each case needs to go before the courts and we don't want to be prejudicial towards the case."

Prime Minister Abbott said on Tuesday that returning IS fighters would be ".
