MARIETTA, Ga. – A 6-year-old girl from Marietta was recovering Tuesday from a shark attack that happened while she and her family were vacationing off the coast of South Carolina. Ella Morris was rescued by her father seconds after the animal pulled her underwater.
Morris was bitten while swimming with her father off Fripp Island in South Carolina. The 6-year-old girl received 22 stitches as a result of the bite.
Morris’ mother said the girl has required very little pain medication since the attack. Morris was unable to walk Tuesday, but she is expected to make a full recovery.
