Mooresville woman bitten by shark while swimming with kids in SC



A Mooresville woman is recovering after she was bitten by a shark while in the ocean near Hilton Head Island in South Carolina.

Kimberly Popp says she was in the water about knee-deep on Tuesday afternoon at Coligny Beach when something hit her foot and she felt the bite.

When she lifted her leg out of the water, she saw a shark latched on to her foot.

“We looked eye to eye,” she said.

She punched the shark in the nose until it let go.
