A 12-year-old boy's amazing story and recovery.
Hi! I am Cassidy Cartwright's mother and she was just bitten in North Carolina on June 26th by a shark. It was covered in the news as well. She is recovering at home right now in Pennsylvania, she was in the hospital in NC until July 1st. She had her right leg injured and was very lucky she didn't lose her foot, but the shark did sever 3 tendons including the achilles, which means she is off her foot for 6-8 weeks, and then she will need Physical therapy. If Nicholas ever wants to talk with Cassidy, I am sure she would be glad to talk with him about their experiences.
