Woman Taken to Hospital With 2-Foot Nurse Shark Still Attached to Her Arm

A 2-foot nurse shark was found attached to her right forearm.

— -- A woman was bitten by a 2-foot-long nurse shark that was still attached to her right forearm at a Boca Raton, Florida, beach Sunday, according to Boca Raton Fire Rescue Services.

Emergency crews responded to a 911 call of a 23-year-old woman bitten by a shark.

Though the shark was killed before the fire department arrived, it was still attached.

Boca Raton Ocean Rescue told a local newspaper that the woman remained calm and there was a little blood. A splint was used to support the woman's arm and the shark as she waited on a stretcher, according to The Associated Press.

The woman, with the dead shark still on her arm, was taken to the Boca Raton Regional Hospital in stable condition.
