How to Protect Yourself When Sharks Attack

A long-distance swimmer said in the two seconds before a great white sank its teeth into his body, he "saw the eyes of the shark" as it bore down on him in the waters off one of Southern California's most popular beaches.

Steve Robles said he went into shock when he "felt the teeth clamping on to my thigh and ribs," but managed to get free of the 7-foot shark's jaws during the attack Saturday morning.

Robles suffered several puncture wounds. The shark was fighting to free itself from a fisherman's line near Manhattan Beach in Los Angeles, said fire rescue officials.

"It was a burning pain that was going down the side of my chest," Robles told ABC station KABC.

Robles was out for a two-mile swim with a group of friends when the shark suddenly appeared.
