Shreveport Man Attacked By Shark, Debate Sparked

A Shreveport man enjoying some time at the beach on vacation is going to be ok, but he’s still in the hospital today.

Sharks20 year-old Tyler McConnell was riding on a jet ski in the Gulf of Mexico near the Florida-Alabama border when he fell off the jet ski and was bitten on the foot by a bull shark. McConnell managed to get back on the water craft and drive to shore. His mother and sister witnessed the incident and called 9-1-1. He was treated at the beach and then transported to a Pensacola hospital.

Here’s the video footage from the local Fox Television affiliate there.
