Reportedly she was bleeding heavily. At this time it is assumed the attack was caused by a shark, however not confirmed. An aggressive, rogue seal could be the culprit, and is not being ruled out. She was conscious and bleeding when she was pulled from the water and transported to the hospital.
“We do suspect the victim was bitten by a shark, but haven’t been able to confirm that because we had no other witnesses,” Rob Williams, Chief Lifeguard of the Newport Beach Fire Department’s Marine Operations Division told ABC news. “There was no reported shark sighting before the incident or after.”
