Another shark attack has taken place in Florida. A woman says that a shark too a chunk out of her leg when she was attacked by a shark during a family trip near Ponce de Leon Park on Melbourne Beach in Florida.

The woman, 38-year-old Amy Tatsch, had a large chunk taken out of her leg on May 15. Based on how big the bite was, her doctor believe the shark that bit her was about seven feet long. Tatsch thinks the shark may have been a bull shark., WKVG reports.

Tatsch, a mother of six, had to have several surgeries over the last two weeks in the hospital.  She is finally home. "(I) can't get up and around, but it's so much nicer to be home and be able to be outside," Tatsch told Local 6 at her Indian Harbour Beach home," she told Lock 6 in Florida from her home. Although injured, she is alive to tell the tale of what happened to her.

Tatsch says she was boogie boarding with her brother when the attack happened. "We caught a couple of waves. He caught one and I drifted down a little farther with the current so I was a little farther away and the next wave that was coming up, I was ready," she said. "I kicked off with my right leg to give me some momentum to ride in and that's when I got bumped. "It was a really hard bump and then seconds after I felt my leg being torn and then I felt the motion of something big swimming away," she said.

Tatsch says her Achilles tendon was torn and the shark was just a few inches away from taking her calf completely off. Tatsch was in a location where there are no lifeguards. Her brother, along with other beachgoers were able to bring Tatsch to shore.

The type of shark that attacked Tatsch has not been confirmed.
