Florida fisherman attacked by shark in Bahamas http://www.baynews9.com/conten…acked+by+shark+in+Bahamas
A Florida man was bitten by a shark when he was spear fishing in the Bahamas.
John Cooper was spear fishing in the Bahamas when another fisherman spotted a six foot Caribbean reef shark.
The fisherman shot the shark out of self defense, and it turned on Cooper.
"Out of self defense he shot the shark," Cooper said, "And even though it was a good shot in the head the shark went crazy."
The shark clamped down on Cooper's leg.
He was taken to a south Florida hospital. Doctors say he is lucky, but should be fine.
