A nurse shark bit a woman in Boca Raton, Florida, and did not want to let go. Doctors were able to separate the two, and the woman was released into the wild.
Via The Hamilton Spectator:
Paramedics in Boca Raton rushed a beachgoer to the hospital with a two-foot-long nurse shark clinging to her arm after efforts to disengage it failed.
Bob Lemons, spokesperson for the Boca Raton Fire Rescue, said the 23-year-old woman was already out of the water when rescuers reached the beach. The dead shark was hanging from her arm.
"She was sitting calmly, seemed to handle it pretty well," Lemons told USA Today. But rescuers could not get the shark to release the woman's arm, so they loaded woman and shark into the ambulance and headed for Boca Raton Regional Hospital.
"This was a unique situation for us," Lemons said. "I haven't heard of something like that with us before, and I've been here almost 30 years."
The woman was treated for her injuries and released.
