GALVESTON, Texas – A 13-year-old boy is recovering after being bitten by a shark on Monday in Galveston.
Bobby Anderson, 17, and his brother, 13-year-old Gregory Slaughter, were visiting their grandfather at MD Anderson Hospital and decided to go to the beach.
They didn’t know danger was lurking nearby.
A big wave knocked Anderson under the water and when he surfaced, he realized his brother was screaming.
“I saw he had my brother. I punched it in the side. I hit it and grabbed him and swam to shore,” Anderson said.
Slaughter suffered injuries to both of his hands and his left ankle.
