Nightmares Haunt Swimmer Bitten By Great White Shark Off Ca Beach | Kpax.com | Missoula, Montana

Robles, who would swim two miles from the Hermosa Beach pier to the Manhattan Beach pier each Saturday, said he is afraid to go back into the water. I hope I do someday, but its off the table right now. He spent a restless night Saturday, waking up from nightmares, he said. The aftermath of the attack was recorded on cell phone video by someone on the beach who was alerted by the screaming. CNN affiliate KTLA posted the video on its website. It shows a group of swimmers frantically trying to reach shore with the victim screaming loudly from the water and people on the pier urging him to hurry, yelling that the shark was still close by. Manhattan Beach Pier has been closed until Tuesday, police said in a news release. There are plenty of great white sharks in the Southern California surf, but they pose no danger to beachgoers, according to Randy Hamilton, a shark expert with Californias Monterey Bay Aquarium.

Manhattan Beach Pier has been closed until Tuesday, police said in a news release. There are plenty of great white sharks in the Southern California surf, but they pose no danger to beachgoers, according to Randy Hamilton, a shark expert with California’s Monterey Bay Aquarium. “I just go back to the last 50 years on how many great white sharks have actually caused a death in Southern California,” Hamilton said in a CNN interview in December. “I only know of one incident where someone got a nip on the foot.” The great whites around Southern California are juveniles, also known as “young of the year.” At less than 18 months old, they only eat fish, Hamilton said. When the sharks approach adulthood, they relocate to the cooler waters near San Francisco, where they change their diets to mammals — sea lions and seals, he said. Shark attacks are still pretty rare, but they have increased at a steady rate since 1900, “with each decade having more attacks then the previous,” according to statistics from the International Shark Attack File based in Gainesville, Florida.
