Surfing Chiropractor Bitten By Shark After Catching Air & Landing On It

By

Crazy story out of New Smyrna Beach, Florida where Dr. Donald Walsh caught a bit of air off the top of a wave, landed on a shark in waist-deep water and was bitten by it. Doc Walsh had taken the day off from his practice to catch some waves at his local break and decided to finish off the session by trying to catch some air. He did not see the shark before he landed on it but did get a glimpse after the bite. He estimated its length at 6.5 feet.  He was treated on scene by paramedics for non-life threatening lacerations to his hand and calf and but declined an ambulance ride and drove himself to a local doctor to get stitched up.  The area where he was surfing is known locally as “The Shark Pit”….yikes:
