Pregnant woman jumps into water to rescue husband from shark attack in Florida


According to the reports, A Man was said to be fortunate after his pregnant wife saved him from shark as he was badly injured.

The man who is identifed as Andrew Eddy, 30, was snorkeling on a private boat at Sombrero Key Light, Florida, on Sunday, September 20, when he was bitten on the shoulder by a shark “almost immediately” upon entering the water, the Monroe County Sheriff’s Office said in a statement.

Andrew Eddy’s wife, Margot Dukes Eddy, 29, saw the shark’s dorsal fin and then saw the water fill with blood. She leaped in immediately and dragged her husband to safety.

The couple was on the boat with Dukes Eddy’s parents, her sister and her sister’s boyfriend, most of whom were already in the water when the attack occurred, an incident report written by Deputy Christopher Aguanno said.

Andrew Eddy, who lives in Atlanta, was taken from the water to Sombrero Beach around 10:30 a.m., and airlifted to Ryder Trauma Center in Miami, the sheriff’s office’s statement said.

His injuries were described as "severe" though his condition has not been released.



The sheriff’s office said that witnesses reported seeing a bull shark in the area and that the one that attacked Eddy was between 8 and 10 feet long. No one else was injured in the attack.
