Shark Attack - Encinitas, CA - Lobster Opener

http://www.foxnews.com/great-outdoor...-injuries.html


Stay safe out there everybody!

Today was such an amazingly beautiful freedive for me & my dive bud... To think this was probably the worst day of this kids life all at the same time not too far north of me... Nuts. Our prayers go out to this kid & the 2 pilots who I heard just crashed into eachother at the air show... Prayers to all. God Bless!

UPdate for out of area guys: the youngster went into surgery Saturday and is now upgraded from critical to serious and is expected to make a full recovery...it opened up his whole back area, so, things were dicey for awhile...11 footer hit him in 9' of water...most important bit of info is one diver said the kid was between the shark and a seal....Dive seal areas and you have to be prepared for unwanted company...….53 shark attacks in the U.S. this year...most of any country, including Australia...these days, I look behind me almost as much as looking forward...
