Dad Punches Shark to Save Teen Daughter from Attack

A North Carolina teenager is recovering from a shark attack at Atlantic Beach. Seventeen-year-old Paige Winter of New Bern was swimming at Fort Macon State Park this past Sunday when the shark bit her. She made it to shore and was airlifted to a regional hospital with deep lacerations to her leg, pelvic area and hand. Her father went into the water and punched the shark repeatedly until it released her. Her family says despite the attack, Paige remains an "unwavering advocate for the marine life" and wants people to continue to respect sharks.
