Shark attacks man on paddleboard who punches back!

A second shark attack on Long Island's Smith Point Beach in less than a week has lead to officials closing the beach after a tiger shark knocked a man off a paddleboard and bit him in the leg, causing a 4-inch gash. The man, after being knocked into the water and bit, punched the shark as it approached him a second time. Officials said the tide carried the man into shore immediately after and he was taken to a nearby hospital for treatment.
