She was taken to Holmes Regional Medical Center.

Visitor Holly Peterson was near the woman when the shark struck.

"I looked over at her and she said, 'Somebody help me.' I saw the fin come up and slap her in the face. She said, 'It got me.' So I grabbed her hand and dragged her back to the shore," said Peterson.
