ANDERSON, Ind. (The Herald Bulletin) - A Pendleton woman was bitten by a small shark March 28 while on vacation in Florida.
Teresa Holloway of Pendleton was treated for lacerations to her foot at Cape Canaveral Hospital last Friday after she was bitten by the small shark, according to WFTV Channel 9.
"She was like, ‘I can't walk,' so we lifted her up and we tried to get her to shore," Holloway's daughter, Tami Jo, told the television station
Holloway was on vacation in Brevard County on the east coast of central Florida, east of Orlando. The attack occurred at Cocoa Beach, where Channel 9 reported, two other such incidents have taken place this year.
Holloway's son believes he saw the shark.
"He was on his way up and he kicked it out of the way," Tami Jo said. "But he didn't want to stop to see what it was because my mom was yelling and stuff."
Tami Jo said her mother's entire foot was caught in the shark's mouth and she had a large wound.
"It was just a baby one, but I would hate to see what a big one would do," Tami Jo said.
Holloway planned to return to Indiana Saturday.
