Rodney Winston Fox (born 1940) did. He was attacked in 1963 by a great white and went on to invent the first underwater observation cage in Australia. Jacques Yves Cousteau also 'invented' a shark cage which is shown in his book, The Silent World, co-authored with Frederick Dumas published in 1953. Cousteau's shark cage was used in a film of the same name which won an Academy Award as the Best Feature-length documentary of 1954
