A mom did what only a panicked mom can do when she saved her daughter from a shark attack in Florida. Valeh Levy was surfing with her 15-year-old daughter Sydney at New Smyrna Beach. A shark had attacked earlier in the afternoon, and the unthinkable happened again.
During the shark attack, the fish pulled Sydney under the water two times, which had to be terrifying for Valeh. The mom fought off the shark, and she pulled the teen onto her board.
The incredibly brave mom said, "It was to me like a scene out of 'Jaws,' where the girl's getting sucked under, and I said, 'There's no way this thing is going to kill my daughter,' and I grabbed her shoulders and I pulled her up and I threw her on the nose of my board."
What an amazing story of bravery and action. Thank goodness this mother acted quickly and saved her daughter from a horrible fate of the shark attack. The girl had surgery, and she is recovering from her wounds. This could have ended tragically. Instead, Valeh took quick action and made sure her daughter was safe.
