A California explorer was left in a state of shock Sunday morning after a shark attack from the Bay Area coastline.
The surfer, who is in his 30s, is unknown. The attack took place near Bodega Bay and a man was bitten on his hip. He was with a group of traffickers and a friend witnessed the attack.
“I saw the dorsal fin of the shark and then I saw the tail fin of the shark,” Jared Davis, a friend, told KTVU. “They were going down into the water. Of course it wasn’t a quick attack. It was nice and slow. It’s like a dolphin getting up.”
Some travelers helped the victim to shore and tried to stop the bleeding. The man was airlifted to the hospital at 9 a.m. and is expected to recover.
