Raymond Senensi was bodyboarding on Makaha Beach Park in Hawaii recently when a shark suddenly ‘popped out of nowhere’ and bit his leg.

However the youngster didn’t panic and managed to kick the shark away using his good leg and a well placed foot to the face.

‘I kicked it with this leg, and then I kicked him in the nose,’ he said.

Thankfully another bodyboarder, Mike Ward, was surfing nearby when the attack occurred. He told HawaiiNewsNow: ‘I said, “What’s wrong?” and he said, “A shark is following me”.’

Together with an off-duty lifeguard, Mike was able to get Raymond back to the beach, where he was rushed to hospital.

Raymond had three deep gashes on his leg, one of which was a large opening on his thigh.

His mother, Shirita Moreno, described the incident as her ‘worst nightmare… but my baby is strong’. She told KHON-TV: I was hysterical; he wasn’t. He was telling me, “Mom, I’m going to be okay”.’

Doctors say Raymond is recovering well and should be discharged from hospital soon. This is the seventh shark attack in Hawaii so far in 2015, which is up from previous years.

However authorities say this is due to more people being in the water, rather than an increase in the area’s shark populations.
