"It started getting closer to the people at the sandbar and they tried to get out", Donovan Cecil told ABC-affiliate WPLG.

The man, who was swimming at Haulover Beach in South Florida, was bitten on both legs on Sunday afternoon.

Right before the attack, lifeguards at Haulover Beach in Miami immediately began blowing their whistles after spotting the shark in the water, according to Local 10.

And if you were wondering about the shark, the 4-foot shark was actually eventually pulled into the shore and had the hook removed before it was released back into the ocean.

Cruz Touts Amendment In Hopes Of Passing Senate Healthcare Bill
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.
