A fisherman who used chum to attract sharks to the pier had cut it loose after hooking it but failing to land it, Robles said. Marine biologist Eric Martin told CNN affiliate KABC that it likely was a “response bite” by the juvenile shark and “the swimmer just happened to be at the wrong place at the wrong time.” “I thought ‘Oh, my God, this is it, I’m gonna die,” Robles said. But the shark’s bite was not deep, sparing Robles’ ribs and organs, he said. “It wasn’t a full-size bite,” said Capt. Tracy Lizlotte, a lifeguard for the Los Angeles County Fire Department. The scars to his psyche may be deeper. Robles, who would swim two miles from the Hermosa Beach pier to the Manhattan Beach pier each Saturday, said he is afraid to go back into the water.

With star striker Diego Costa on his way to Chelsea and veteran forward David Villa also leaving this summer, Atletico will need a new-look strikeforce next season as they attempt to defend their first La Liga title in almost 20 years. The likes of Mario Mandzukic, Romelu Lukaku and Jackson Martinez have all been touted as possible signings, but it is Manchester City striker Negredo – who has also been linked with Atletico – that Moya would most like to see brought in. “On a personal level, among all of them, I can say that he is my preferred choice, the ideal one, especially because I know him. He’s Spanish and I like him a lot,” said Moya, who also admitted any of the other forwards mentioned would be welcome additions as well. “But if we’re talking about Mandzukic, Jackson or Lukaku, they are also among the top 20 strikers in the world.” Which big name stars could be on the move? Find out with the latest Rumor Mill. As well as Costa and Villa, Atletico could also lose several more of the side that won the Primera Division and reached the final of the Champions League, with Thibaut Courtois, Tiago, Filipe Luis and Joao Miranda all having left the club or the subject of transfer speculation.
