Shark attack survivor recounts his experience: "When the shark first bit my leg, I started kicking at it. Then it let go"

On Tuesday evening, shark attack survivor Chris Myers sat down with Piers Morgan and recounted his recent experience with a great white shark off the coast of Cape Cod, Massachusetts. A surprisingly placid Myers told Morgan, "I honestly am not sure I ever thought I could die. I think what I thought was my - a shark has my leg. I think that's as far as I got."

Myers then continued his story with the same "phlegmatic" demeanor Morgan assumed Myers maintained during the attack saying, "When the shark first bit my leg, I started kicking at it. Then it let go."

"The next thing that happened is it surfaced, almost like it was doing a little display. It surfaced. So there's - you know, you're my son and I'm me. And the shark is right between us. We were - my son and I were five feet apart."

Watch the clips, and listen to the interview, as Morgan marvels over this extraordinary tale of survival.

    Now he has the coolest story ever and has the scars to prove it. Best and worst moment of his life? hard to say.

    A provision of ObamaCare is set to punish roughly two-thirds of U.S. hospitals evaluated by Medicare starting this fall over high readmission rates, according to an analysis by Kaiser Health News.

    Starting in October, Medicare will reduce reimbursements to hospitals with high 30-day readmission rates – which refers to patients who return within a month – by as much as 1 percent. The maximum penalty increases to 2 percent the following year and 3 percent in 2014.

    Why isn't MSDNC and CNN not reporting this!

    obamacare is throwing the seniors and middle class under the bus!

    obama wants seniors to die!
