Late on Saturday afternoon, a 36-year-old woman was attacked by a shark at Church, a break just south of Lowers at San Onofre beach. “We can confirm it was a shark bite, but the extent of injuries is unknown at this time,” Camp Pendleton Sgt. Asia Sorenson told the LA Times. A crowdfunding campaign was set up to help her.
According to Travis Lara, a state park worker, the woman was wading in front of the Camp Pendleton campground when the attack occurred. She was wearing swim fins at the time and was with three friends, two of whom were on surfboards. Lara told the OC Register that the shark bit her on her glute and thigh.
