SWIMMER INJURED IN SHARK ATTACK IN CALIFORNIA
A shark attacked a woman wading in the ocean with friends, tearing away part of her upper thigh off a popular Southern California beach, authorities and witnesses said Sunday. The attack occurred Saturday near San Onofre State Beach in San Diego County. “All of the back of her leg was kind of missing,” Thomas Williams, one of several witnesses who pulled the woman ashore, told the Orange County Register. “If she didn’t receive immediate care, it was life-threatening.” Williams said the woman was conscious and talking while onlookers used a rubber surfboard leash as a tourniquet to stop the bleeding.
