Teenage Girl Attacked by Shark, and All She Has to Show For It is This Stupid Little Bite (Photo)
This is Mikaela. She is a 14 year-old girl from Houston who went with her family to nearby Galveston to hang out at the beach and probably be embarrassed by her parents as 14-year-olds always are.
What most 14-year-olds don’t do is get eaten by sharks…
Okay, so maybe Mikaela didn’t get eaten, but she almost did. At the very least, we can say that the shark nipped at her. With those bite marks, it’s hard to argue otherwise. I don’t know anything else that can make that shape with its teeth. Maybe a very weak bear trap, but that wouldn’t make much sense in coastal Texas.
Mikaela said that she heard a sort of exhale, then felt something hit her shoulder. But she wasn’t really in pain, and didn’t know what had happened until she returned to land and the marks were clear. Mikaela’s fine and no stitches were needed, thankfully.
No word on what kind of shark it was, but I’m going to say “baby Great White” because it makes for a better story than “sand shark.”
Be careful out there, everyone. There are baby sharks everywhere, and they now have a taste for blood.
