September 15, 2022

Over two months ago, 17-year-old Addison Bethea was viciously attacked by a shark. The Florida teen was out searching for scallops when a shark suddenly attacked her right leg. Thankfully, her older brother swam to her rescue. Bethea credits her brother with saving her life by tying a tourniquet before she bled out. Surgeons did their best. However, her right leg had to be amputated above her knee. Now, Bethea is in for another life-changing moment when she was fitted with a brand new leg.
