A free diver has been attacked by a shark off Florida’s Jupiter Inlet before being airlifted to medical facilities upon reaching shore.
According to WPBF, rescue crews were dispatched around 1 p.m., following reports that a man who had been attacked by a shark was being brought to shore. The attack took place several miles from the coast and the victim, who has yet to be named, was transported to Jupiter Inlet Park by boat. After being evaluated, the man, who appeared to be in his 60s or 70s according to WPTV, was airlifted to St. Mary’s Medical Center. He was communicating with first responders, according to eyewitnesses, and appeared to still be wearing his wetsuit.
