Shayn Roby’s Take: It appears the Great White shark nearly ruined someone’s life forever, but thankfully, the victim only suffered minor injuries.

An agitated great white shark fighting off a fisherman bit a swimmer’s upper torso area near the Manhattan Beach Pier (map) Saturday morning, according to Los Angeles County Fire Department Lifeguard Division’s spokesman Rick Flores.
A fisherman had hooked the shark and been attempting to reel in the animal for 30 to 40 minutes when a group of long-distance swimmers swam by the scene around 9:20 a.m., Flores said.
The fisherman, who asked not to be identified, recounted the incident in an interview.
“The rules and regulations are, when a great white is hooked, as soon as you can identify it you’re supposed to cut your line,” he said. “There was the long-distance swimmers coming from Hermosa [Beach]. At the wrong place, at the wrong time, they swam right into him, unknowingly.”
