Meadows previously indicated that his conservative caucus did not think the Senate's bill did enough to eliminate ACA regulations. He said he hasn't decided how he will vote on the Senate's health care bill because he wants to "judge the final product".
Haulover Beach is 9 miles north of Miami Beach. The victim was leaving the water with other swimmers after lifeguards saw the shark and ordered an evacuation.
The swimmer, who was alert and conscious, was transported to Aventura Hospital with injuries to his lower limbs, according to Miami-Dade Fire Rescue. "This is the first shark attack in Miami-Dade County that I've been aware of working 20 years in ocean rescue".
"Although these incidents are rare, we still ask beachgoers to always be aware of their surroundings", Sparling said. In the second attempt, the man gets hold of the shark's tail but the animal turns around and bites the man's hand.
