Andrew Eddy, 30, was on a snorkeling trip with his pregnant wife, Margot Dukes-Eddy and her family at Sombrero Reef in the Florida Keys. But as Eddy had just slid into the water, a large shark latched onto his shoulder.

"Dukes saw the shark’s dorsal fin and then blood filling the water. Dukes, without hesitation, dove into the water and pulled Eddy to the safety of the boat," the police wrote in his report.

警方在報告中指出:「杜克斯先看到鯊魚背鰭,接著血水染紅大海。她毫不遲疑地跳入水中,把艾迪拉到安全的船上。」
