Florida Mom Wrestles Down a Shark to Save Daughter (VIDEO)


Florida Mom Wrestles Down a Shark to Save Daughter (VIDEO)

When Valeh Levy and her 15-year-old, Sydney went out for a mother/daughter surf on Florida's New Smyrna Beach earlier this week, she thought they were in for a little fun in the sun. But a shark, crusing shallow waters much earlier in the season than anyone expected, yanked Sydney right off her board and underwater.

Levy did not allow herself to be fazed; she reached right into the water and wrestled her daughter out of the shark's jaws. She later described her mindset during the attack to ABC News, "I said, ‘There’s no way this thing is going to kill my daughter.’"
