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.
