Killer Beaches of 2007: Marina State Beach
Now that summer's winding down, our Killer Beaches Map seems but a distant memory. But unfortunately for surfer Todd Endris, we've got a new candidate today: Monterey's Marina State Beach.
Things got pretty gruesome, as Endris went from surfer to shark attack victim. Though he managed to punch the shark, a California State Parks spokesman said things started looking grim:
The shark took him down under the water. Witnesses saw a lot of thrashing and some blood coming up. Other witnesses saw the shark let him up before biting him one more time.
Endris eventually managed to fend the shark off, but he didn't get away unscathed: He underwent surgery for bites on his torso and thigh. A hospital employee summed it up nicely:
His vital signs are stable and he's conscious and uncomfortable, obviously.
