INJURED – 11 March 2007 – Tiger Shores Beach, Hutchinson Island, Florida – surfer attacked

Adam McMichael suffered deep cuts on his right forearm after being attacked by a shark while surfing at Tiger Shores Beach, Hutchinson Island, Florida at around 1pm on Sunday 11 March, 2007.

According to a report in Florida’s Sun Sentinel several witnesses heard McMichael screaming for help. He managed to paddle back to shore where he was assisted by beachgoers before paramedics arrived.

Kaye Cross, on vacation in Florida, looked in McMichael’s direction from her spot on the beach and could see “big, long deep slices” on his arm and “a trail of blood.”

A resident of nearby Jensen Beach, Craig Price, told the newspaper that McMichael said he had “just felt a tug” and never saw the shark, which remains unidentified.

McMichael was taken to Martin Memorial Medical Center in Stuart for surgery to save tissue in his shoulder. He was reported in stable condition.
