Surfer Recounts Fatal Shark Attack in Florida
Tim Dicus was surfing when he heard the scream. He turned and saw a girl swimming as fast as she could _ and another one face down in a bloody circle of water. Dicus, 54, paddled over to the wounded 14-year-old girl, who had been swimming on a boogie board about 100 yards offshore.
“Right next to her was the shark, about to come up and attack her again,” Dicus said. He put the girl on his surf board and the shark _ which appeared to be a bull shark about 8 feet long _ went after her hand.
