(KCBS) -- A visitor from Canada is SAN ONOFRES latest shark-attack survivor.
The shark bit into the woman's leg, while she was surfing near Old Mans Thursday morning. Right after she was released from the hospital, the victim shared her harrowing story with KCBS News 2's Alfred Morales.
The warning signs are up after a shark bite on San Onofres Old Mans Beach.
"It was after he bit me that, and was kind of, the water had calm down a little bit, that I was really like screaming my head off," Elizabeth Dunn, shark bite victim, said.
Dunn has quite a story for the folks back home in Canada.
"The doctor said that, based on the way the bite marks are, that it was really big, that it could have swallowed me," she said. "So I just feel really, really lucky."
Her surf session started with the Paskowitz surf camp instructor taking her into an area known for sharks . She entered the murky waters with two friends at about 9:30 a.m.
"I caught a wave that was like one of the best waves I've ever caught in my life," Dunn said. "It was perfect, and I just had it beautifully like the whole way."
But that perfect ride took her away from her group. The 28-year-old was all alone...with a shark. "I know I saw gray and stuff," she said. "And then very quickly, he bit my leg.
Then I saw his fin, which was really tall."
The holes in her wet suit tell the tale.

That Old Man's real draws the doocies. Them Canadians,all of them, will migrate to Ol' 'Nofre to fight sharks don't you know.


Shotzy, a predator shark is nothing compared to a coronary occulsion. If your CO takes place while surfing "Old Man's you'll wish you were consumed headfirst by the Great White. Believe you me.

Murphy walked into a pharmacy one day, picked out a box of tampons and proceeded to the checkout counter.

The man at the counter asked, "Do you know what these are used for?"

Murphy replied, "Not exactly, I saw on TV that if you use these, you would be able to swim, play tennis and ride a bike. Right now, I can't do none of those".

Dearest Shotzy, are you positive sharks are playable on San-O Daze? It seems all that's left are Hemorrhoids King and code blues. What became of Puttzle and his Blog Patrol?
