But the sharks bite was not deep, sparing Robles ribs and organs, he said. It wasnt a full-size bite, said Capt. Tracy Lizlotte, a lifeguard for the Los Angeles County Fire Department. The scars to his psyche may be deeper. Robles, who would swim two miles from the Hermosa Beach pier to the Manhattan Beach pier each Saturday, said he is afraid to go back into the water. I hope I do someday, but its off the table right now. He spent a restless night Saturday, waking up from nightmares, he said.

Robles, who would swim two miles from the Hermosa Beach pier to the Manhattan Beach pier each Saturday, said he is afraid to go back into the water. “I hope I do someday, but it’s off the table right now.” He spent a restless night Saturday, waking up from nightmares, he said. The aftermath of the attack was recorded on cell phone video by someone on the beach who was alerted by the screaming. CNN affiliate KTLA posted the video on its website. It shows a group of swimmers frantically trying to reach shore with the victim screaming loudly from the water and people on the pier urging him to hurry, yelling that the shark was still close by. Manhattan Beach Pier has been closed until Tuesday, police said in a news release.

If anything, its just the opposite. When these types of horrible attacks happen, many people in our community express their love for Israel by going there, showing solidarity. Behnam Dayanim, a partner in a District law firm, said his oldest daughter is leaving for Israel in August to study at a seminary in Jerusalem. She has expressed no anxiety, he said, and he has given her no special advice. Its safe to say the likelihood of violence in Israel is lower than it is in large cities in the United States, he said. I dont think my general advice is any different from my advice when she went to college in New York: Avoid dangerous situations and dont behave recklessly.
