“A Shark bite is only one of many possible endings to a Shark Attack”
“An UNPROVOKED Shark Attack is only one of many types of Shark Attack”

When you see the words Unprovoked or Bite associated with Shark Attacks, someone is trying to hide shark dangers you may face should you enter the water. In most cases, the word unprovoked equals the number of incidents shared with the public. Any other type of Shark Attack is kept a secret from the public.

‘I Fought a Shark and Won': Young Girl Shares Survival Story After Attack Off Florida Coast

A 10-year-old girl is sharing her story of survival after being attacked by a shark off Florida's east coast this past weekend.

Jasmine Carney said she found herself in the presence of the shark while swimming off Hobe Sound Beach on Sunday afternoon.

"I fought a shark and won," Carney said in an interview with NBC affiliate WPTV-TV. "Something grabbed me. It looked pretty big and it was gray. It hurt, so I'm like, kick it (and) run away."

Carney's adoptive grandmother, who goes by Nana, said she was amazed after seeing what took place.

"She came running up that beach, screaming, 'Nana! Nana! Something bit me. Something bit me,'" she recalled. "And I saw all the blood and went and got a lifeguard."

The child was flown by helicopter to Palm Beach Children's Hospital, where she was treated for a severe injury to her right foot.

"There's a piece missing," said her surgeon, Dr. Nir Hus. "Luckily for her, this was the only location that she was bitten."

A simple explanation of the word unprovoked is chosen to be shared. Each year shark attack researchers choose certain shark attacks they share with the public. The ISAF website states, “All of the data publically available on the ISAF website is from unprovoked incidents.” Ocean users, beware that the ISAF has 6800 incidents on file, with only 3292, or 47%, being chosen to be shared with the public. In 2019 they chose 45%, and in 2020 they only chose 44% of the investigated incidents.
