A Waco dentist is recovering after he was attacked by a shark Saturday morning while vacationing in the Bahamas.

In a Facebook post, Doctor Steven Cutbirth said he was with his family when he was attacked by a bull shark.

He was spearing fish with his son-and-law when he caught a 10 pound hog fish.

When the fish began swimming up to the surface, the shark that was trying to eat the fish attacked him.
