Teen surfer survives shark attack despite wearing band meant to repel them
Zack Davis, 16, was surfing in Florida when a shark appeared out of nowhere and attacked him. The teen is lucky to be alive after the surprise encounter that occurred despite the fact he was wearing a device to reduce the risk of an attack. At the time, Davis was wearing a SharkBanz, a device swimmers and surfers wear on their wrists or ankles. A promotional video from the company claims the device wards off sharks with a high-powered magnet. Davis says he got the $80 anti-shark apparatus for Christmas.
