INJURED – 28 June 2010 – 8 Mile Road, Galveston Island, Texas, US – surfer attacked

Chad Rogers, 20, suffered lacerations to his foot after being bitten by a shark while surfing  “just past the second sandbar” off 8 Mile Road, Galveston Island, Florida, US. The incident happened on 28 June 2010.

Rogers kicked the shark with his other foot to make it release its grip. He then paddled over the shark and back to shore, hopped quarter mile to his car with the aid if a friend and was then taken to hospital where he had some 50 stitches to treat the wound.

“When I pulled my foot out, I was bleeding all over the place. I was kind of freaking out. I never thought I would get bitten by a shark,” he told media.

Rogers thought the shark was a 5-foot bull shark.
