He was on the move when it felt like a baseball bat hit the bottom of his kayak, but it was no piece of sporting equipment. It was a 15-foot great white shark. The shark threw him 5 feet in the air and into the water.
“I had my life vest on and it came across me, and I didn’t want to touch it. I had my hands back but his tail came across me and I felt his skin on my hands and it was a pretty crazy, eery feeling,” Joey said, according to KSDK.com.
Thankfully, he was not injured in the scary shark incident. -Brian McClintock
