Surfer Punches Shark In Eye, Shark Retreats: Video

By Robert Paul Reyes

"A Hawaii surfer who was attacked by a shark said the encounter ended when he managed to punch the carnivorous fish in the eye.


Jeff Horton, 25, said he was sitting on his surfboard off Pila`a Beach, near Kilauea, Sunday morning when he spotted an object coming toward him at a high speed and moved his left leg out of the way."


If I snuck onto my neighbor`s backyard and took a swim in his swimming pool, I shouldn`t be shocked if he fired a warning shot in my direction.

If a surfer dude swims in shark infested waters he shouldn`t be surprised if a shark takes a bite out of his board.

If you swim with the sharks don`t be amazed if you end up sleeping with the fishes.

I`m glad neither the surfer nor the shark was seriously hurt in this incident.
