Woman kayaking off Catalina has run-in with shark
Bettina Pereira was in an area she has frequented for years when a shark bumped her kayak, KCAL9 reported.
"My first thought was, `wow, was that a whale?"' Pereira told KCAL. "I couldn't believe it and all of a sudden when I seen the fin I realized this is not a whale -- this is a shark. By the time I thought that ... the shark was already cruising under me and lifting the kayak up with its body, and I landed out of the kayak right onto the shark's body."
Pereira's son told her husband a shark was attacking her, but the shark swam away and Pereira started swimming toward the shore, KCAL9 reported.
Two men in a boat pulled up and helped her to the shore.
