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.
