Steven Robles had a terrifying encounter with a 7-foot great white shark recently while swimming in Manhattan Beach, California.
The animal became agitated by a fisherman's hook, and chomped into Robles torso as he swam nearby.
"My life was just a half a second from ending, and I had to fight for my life," he told CNN's Michaela Pereira.
While Robles is now recovering from the wounds, he's traumatized and says he might never return to the open water.
But how likely is it that YOU'LL be attacked by a shark?
However, Wojcik said that just because there are sharks out there doesn't mean you should panic.
There's a 1 in 3.7 million chance you'll be attacked by a shark in America.
That means you are more likely to be killed by a cow (~20 people a year are killed by cows), or even by falling out of bed (~450 people a year die by falling out of bed).
And – fun fact: If you're a soccer fan, players have a higher chance of being bitten by Uruguay's Luis Suarez than you do of being bitten by a shark (1 in 2,000 vs 1 in 3.7 million).
