17-year-old attacked by shark after sharks were spotted near the shore days before

17-year-old Addison Bethea was hunting for scallops on the Keaton Beach shore in Florida when a shark grabbed onto her leg and thrashed her around.

This incident comes after an attack in the Florida Keys on Wednesday and another in California eight days ago.
