North Carolina 17-Year-Old Bit by Shark: ‘I Will Be OK’
A 17-year-old who was attacked by a shark was saved by her father, who punched the animal repeatedly until it released her. Paige Winter, 17, was enjoying a day at the beach with her family at Fort Macon State Park in North Carolina over the weekend when she got pulled under the water. Fortunately her father, Charlie, a firefighter and paramedic, sprang into action. "He punched the shark in the face [five] times before it let go," Paige’s grandmother posted on social media.
