Shark Attack Marina State Beach

Click here for an eyewitness account of the shark attack at Marina State Beach October 29th, 2011.

A second shark attack occurred this morning at Marina State Beach. I don't have any details, but I was told the person was bit on the shoulder and taken to a hospital. Praying for that surfer.

I just spoke to the lifeguard who said the surfer, Eric Tarantino, "is going to be okay. He had puncture wounds to his arm and neck,
deeper in the arm than the neck."

The lifeguard said, "the victim's friend didn't know Eric got attacked until he yelled, 'Shark!'"

The lifeguard continued "He was able to paddle in own his own."

By the size of the bite mark on the surfboard the lifeguard estimated the shark to be between 12 and 14 feet.

"That shark is probably out there right now,"says a Surfer staring out to sea.

"Yeah," agree all the surfers standing around watching waves peel down the beach.
