On Saturday morning, a long distance swimmer, was bitten in a Great White Shark attack just off the coast at Manhattan Beach, California.

Swimming off the beach, 40 year-old Steven Robles was bitten on the chest and the hand as he trained alongside 15 others. The attack is believed to be as a result of the shark panicking after been hooked by the line of local fishermen, who as the video proves, laughed at Steven’s screams before the realised the severity of the situation.

A two mile stretch of the beach was closed after the attack, to allow boats to lead the Shark back out to deeper waters. Despite a half hour struggle with the shark prior to the attack, it was cut free from the fisherman’s line and within half hour was back out at sea.
