Unfortunate Attack!

On a 60 degree day; December 28, 2014 Surfing 120 yards from the shore at Sand Spit, Montano De Oro, 50 year old Kevin Swanson was struck with a fatal attack from a Great White Shark! At "9-10 feet" the shark bit into Kevin gripping his thigh and surfboard and ferociously pulling him under. “I was sitting upright, straddling my surfboard, when struck by the shark. The shark came out of the water and bit into my thigh, I was immediately pulled below the surface. Andrew(Kevin's friend) said it was like I suddenly disappeared without a trace. I saw the shark attached to my leg while below the surface. I was released and exploded back to the surface like a cork. Andrew said I surfaced about 20 feet from where I had been pulled under. The attack was quick and violent. Not sure, but milliseconds before the shark attacked I felt a tremendous amount of non physical energy." Kevin Swanson said. In fear of the shark coming back he yelled "SHARK!" and quickly paddled to the shore where he was airlifted to sierra vista hospital. His wounds were sutured in a two hour operation, Kevin Swanson was released the following day and interviewed when he said he would be back out in the ocean as soon as he can. He would never stop doing the thing he loves :)
