Hilton Head Island has had its share of shark attacks. Hilton Head is located off South Carolina.
The most recent shark attack was recorded in July 2006, and this will be about the third reported. There are said to be a few more shark encounters that have not made the headlines.
Dallas Jackson was the latest shark attack victim at Hilton Head Island. He was bitten by a shark at Singelton beach and has received over 10 stitches in his ankle area.
“I just felt a very large, almost like a baseball bat, hitting me in the leg,” Jackson said. “It was really hard. It kind of knocked me off balance, and I felt a little bit of a tug at the same time.
“The first thing that went through my mind was, `I just got bit by a shark.’ “
