Brave teenager punches shark after being attacked on beach

Brave teenager punches shark after being attacked on beach

Damiana Humphrey was splashing around in the ocean when she suddenly felt razor-sharp teeth biting into her hand. When she realized she was being attacked by a shark, Humphrey began to fight back. “At first I was a bit shocked that I had hit/punched the shark, but it was just a natural reaction of my body,” says Humphrey. The shark ended up severing four of her tendons. Her parents say they are incredibly proud of their brave daughter.
