Is everyone winding down after a busy weekend? I don't know about where you are, but it's been super hot here -- 95° today, and it's supposed to be 97° tomorrow and 98° on Tuesday. I am so thankful to have an air-conditioned home; I realize there are some people who have to survive without that.
I hadn't planned to post tonight, but I had to share this story with you. Our neighbors down the street told my husband this evening that there was a shark attack on Oak Island today (the place we go every summer for vacation). I looked it up online, and there were actually two shark attacks there today, both within two miles of each other and 90 minutes apart. This just feels like shades of "Jaws" somehow.
A 13 year-old girl was attacked first; she has lost part of her left arm, and may lose her left leg. The second attack involved a 16 year-old boy, and he has already lost an arm. Both were airlifted to a nearby hospital for surgery. You can read the complete story here: http://myfox8.com/2015/06/14/teen-boy-loses-arm-in-nc-shark-attack-second-attack-off-nc-coast-today/
I think this is so sad. Two young people are now maimed for life, but I'm sure their families are just glad to have them alive. Based on the extent of the injuries, there is some speculation these teens were attacked by a tiger shark (below) or a bull shark.
This is not a normal occurrence in this area, and I find it a bit unnerving. I haven't been in the ocean for years, and I definitely won't be going in now. Are there many shark attacks where you live?
Thanks so much for stopping by House at Forest Manor. You all are the best. :)
