A young woman describes the terrifying moment she was attacked by a shark while swimming in Florida

Sarah was bitten by a shark in Palm Beach, Florida, in November. She was out for a morning swim with her boyfriend when she noticed something black and approximately 6 feet long swimming underneath her.

Before she knew it, she was out of the water trying to explain to her boyfriend what had just happened. Meanwhile, he was staring at the bleeding gash on her leg.
