INJURED – 6 February 2008 – Brevard County, Florida, US – surfer attacked

A surfer, not named, was reportedly bitten on the foot by a shark while surfing near Patrick Air Force Base in Brevard County, Florida, US. The incident occurred on Wednesday 6 February 2008.

According to witness Jon Humphrey, 33, the man refused treatment.

Humphrey, 33, told Local 6 News partner Florida Today that he and a friend paddled out about 50 to 100 feet off the beach when another surfer near them began shouting, “Shark!”

Humphrey said he looked up and the guy was “punching a shark that was on his foot.”

“He got onto the beach and was holding his foot,” said Humphrey, who along with his friend grabbed a T-shirt and wrapped the man’s foot. He said the wound appeared to be bad enough to require stitches.

Humphrey said the shark appeared to be about 3 feet long.

No other details were reported.
