INJURED — 29 July 2006 — Playalinda Beach, Florida, US — surfer attacked
Matt Wishengrad, 15, was bitten on the foot while surfing at Playalinda Beach, Florida, US on Saturday, 29 July.
The brief report on WFTV said Matt was trying out his new surfboard when the shark bit down hard on his foot. When the shark let go, Wishengrad swam as fast as he could for the beach.
“I paddled back and, as I looked behind me and saw a trail of blood, I was like, hope another shark doesn’t come and get me,” he said.
He required a lot of stitches to close up the shark bite, according to WFTV.
No other details were reported.
