A pregnant woman who saved her husband from a three-metre-long bull shark has been hailed as a hero after police said she dived in after him “without hesitation”.
Andrew Charles Eddy, 30, was snorkelling in the Florida Keys on Sunday (local time) when the shark latched onto his shoulder.
His pregnant wife, Margot Dukes-Eddy, who was onboard the boat, saw the dorsal fin and then blood spill into the water, the Miami Herald reported.
"Dukes, without hesitation, dove into the water and pulled Eddy to the safety of the boat,” Sheriff’s Deputy Christopher Aguanno said in his report.
Mrs Dukes-Eddy was not injured, according to the Miami Herald. It’s unknown how far along she is in her pregnancy.
Mr Eddy was airlifted to Ryder Trauma Centre at Miami's Jackson Memorial Hospital following the attack. His condition is unknown.
The family has requested privacy at this time.
Dukes and Eddy have been married since October 2017, according to her Facebook page.
They live in Atlanta where Dukes works as a media consultant.
