A man that was kayaking over the weekend has escaped a shark attack from one of the most dangerous shark species. Adam Coca was attacked by a great white shark while he was kayaking over the weekend in the area of Pigeon Point off the coast of San Mateo.
The man, who is 45 years of age, was fishing in his kayak in a place that is known as the ‘Red Triangle’ just off the coast of San Mateo. This area is known for being a shark area and although the kayaker might not have known this at the time, he certainly knew it when the great white shark got hold of his kayak.
The man said that the shark tipped the kayak completely over but he managed to hang on to the other side of the kayak in order to prevent the shark from getting to him. Shortly after he managed to survive the attack, his friends came to his rescue as they saw what was happening.
Adam survived the shark attack with minor injuries as he just suffered a small cut on his foot. This was certainly a lucky escape.
