Shark Attack off Florida Coast

An underwater videographer nearly lost his arm after he was attacked while trying to film a rare shark in Florida. Mark Rackley needed 58 stitches following the attack by an 8-foot blue shark off Sugarloaf Key, earlier this month. The veteran diver, 48, was taking photographs of the species – not usually found in the area – when it struck. ‘I came into its space – it felt like a grab and a tug and it seemed to numb right away, it happened in the blink of an eye,’ he said. ‘I’d swum over her and provoked the shark – I was in her zone. ‘The real pain came when I was on the way to the hospital.’
