Kevin Ross 29-year-old surfer was bitten on his his left foot at New Symrna Beach Florida today. Mr. Ross told Myfox “I never, ever, thought I’d be attacked by a shark,” He said. “When it grabbed me, I was like ‘Oh my God, I’m going to die! This shark is about to eat me in the water!’ I was just trying to paddle and get back to shore as fast as I could, and I kept looking back to see if it was going to come back and get me.”
At the time of the incident he was paddling through bait fish.
He received 30 stitches in his foot saying “I started paddling back and I had a wave push me back in a little bit, and when I got in, it was flayed open.”
He believes a 4ft blacktip shark bit him.
The incident occurred at 11:30am, about a mile south of another bite that happened at 11.
An abundance of bait fish and choppy water could be to blame.
