10-year-old girl bitten by shark, escapes, jumps back in to rescue 6-year-old


Kaley was in the ocean with friends and family Wednesday afternoon and was taking a break from surfing and was wading in waist-deep water when she said she felt a bite, and then saw the shark.

“She turned and yelled to her friend get out of the water! It’s a shark! So this little girl ran, a friend of our daughter, to go get the moms. And Kaley walked herself out of the ocean,” Szarmack said. “And she realized the 6-year-old was still in the water. So she turned around and went back and got the 6-year-old and took her out of the water. She pulled the little girl back out of the water.”

Not only did Kaley get herself out of harm’s way after just being bitten by a shark, she went back to help another little girl while she did it.
