Humboldt Surfer Attacked By Shark
A 25-year old unnamed surfer was attacked by what he said was a shark while surfing a popular local spot. The man was able to make it to the beach under his own power, then picked up by a guy who was passing by and rushed to the hospital. “It punctured all the way through. There were guts and meat hanging,” said Jason Gabriel who assisted the man. The unidentified surfer had at least four large wounds—one of them 14 inches long. He underwent surgery and was listed in fair condition this morning and is expected to be released soon. The attack marks the second in California this month after 39-year old Javier Solorio Jr. was killed by (presumably) a great white shark off Surf Beach in Central California.
