Shark Takes Bite Out of Swimmer

It’s scary enough to swim with a shark. Just imagine almost getting eaten by one.

Thats exactly what happened to  Steven Robles while swim training at Manhattan Beach in California.

“I’m sitting there staring at this shark eye-to-eye,” Robles said. “I could feel the vibration of this entire shark gnawing into my skin.”

Uhhh… ouch!

After a fisherman tried to reel in the seven-foot shark for nearly an hour, the Great White finally decided to fight back and that’s when Robles lunged right at the shark and was able to fight it off.

Despite bites on his chest and hands, he’s doing just fine and is home recovering.

Looks like death lost its grip on this one.
