“His collarbone was torn,” recalls a witness. - We told him that everything will be fine, everything will be fine with him - we have already called for help. I shouted to people to get out of the water, because there is a shark! ”.

As soon as the child was put into the kayak and began to move towards the shore, it turned out that the shark was still behind the boat - a large animal approximately 11 feet (3,35 meters) long.
