We hate to list this as an attack when it is so very common in Florida and Carribean waters. If all incidents like this or surfers knocked off their board were reported and counted there would be thousands more attacks each year.

To protect the reef in the Western Carribean Sea from the destructive and invasive Lionfish (which have no natural predators in these foreign waters and are killing native fish species), diver Jason Dimitri was on assignment culling lion fish when a Caribbean Reef Shark suddenly appeared. Jason said he was about 70 ft underwater and captured the harrowing experience on his GoPro.
