INJURED – 8 September 2007 – Pepper Park beach, Florida, United States – wader attacked

Carolyn Griffin, 58, was bitten on the leg by a shark while wading offshore of Pepper Park, Florida, US on Saturday 8 September 2007. She received 12 tooth punctures to the front of her leg and a 5cm deep gash on her calf muscle.

According to media the lifeguard said the wounds were consistent with a 4 foot Bull shark.

Griffin said she had just waded into the water when she felt a bump on her leg. At first she thought it was a boogie board — until she saw a fin swimming away.

She went to the lifeguard who wrapped her wound. She was taken by ambulance to Lawnwood Regional Medical Center & Heart Institute where she received stitches and staples to the gash. Her wounds were minor and she was expected to be OK.

No other details were reported.
