Hayden Edwards, 38, made his first paddle past the breakers at Wamberal Beach around 10 a.m. While he was admiring the sun glittering off the blue water, a 6-foot (1.8 m) shark grabbed his right hand.

The father of three was able to shake off the shark and return to shore. He quickly notified lifeguards who called emergency services.

An ambulance was dispatched to the scene and emergency personnel wrapped Edward’s hand and transported him to the hospital. He is scheduled to have surgery to repair three severed tendons and a hole in his damaged hand.
