Don Walsh just wanted to relax and go surfing on New Smyrna Beach but as he was trying to throw an air, he fell off of his surfboard and landed on a shark which bit him.
“I never really try to throw an air but I tried to throw one. I didn’t land it; landed on a shark instead and he decided to take a bite out of me,” Walsh told Orlando News 6.
“It felt like a freight train hit me and the first thing I could think of was to literally push him away from me and as soon as it happened. I grabbed my board and started to paddle as fast as I could.”
