Young Florida Teen Punches Shark Once Attacked


A young 13 year old teen from Florida had had enough when a large bull shark struck her hard in the stomach. The bravery this young lady exuded was astounding and it was a miracle she wasn’t hurt worse than she was.

“A 13-year-old girl escaped a shark attack at a Florida beach Thursday by punching the aggressive, predatory creature.

The teen, Ella Reed, told South Florida’s Local 10 News , was sitting in waist-deep water, alongside a friend, when she was struck by intense, sharp pain.

“The shark itself was so powerful,” Reed reportedly said. “That was what I felt the most because it was hitting my stomach really hard.”

Reed said that she punched the shark when it came over to her. While the shark swam away, it returned almost immediately. “It wouldn’t leave me alone, so I had to use my arm and use my hand too, so it got my arm and my finger,” Reed told the station.

Reed then shouted for her brother and mom. “It was insane because she was totally covered in blood pretty much from head to toe so she couldn’t really see what went on,” her mother remarked. “She was shaking, but she was calm.”
