Most people would be thankful just to survive a shark attack. But Eugene Finney, says he was lucky to have encountered the dangerous animal. While swimming in the sunny California ocean, when out of no where he was hit with a tremendous force!
He didn’t think much of the blow, and thought it could have been a surfer. But when he got into shore, lifeguards noticed that he had a large gash on his back. Moments later, they saw a shark swimming in the water.
After his vacation and near death experience, he flew home to be with his family. But the pain jsut didn’t seem to go away! He then revisited the doctor and was diagnosed with “interior bruising of the thoracic cavity, due to blunt-force trauma”.
Unfortunately for Eugene, they also found a cancerous tumor on his kidney. Luckily they found it early enough that it was treatable, but he says that he thanks god that the shark attacked him because he believes it saved his life.
