It happened I think everybody was just.
Stunned and shocked and and so amazed at your courage in coming back and not just the coming up vibration issue on -- -- going back into the water.
For heaven's sakes.
How long from the time of the shark attack did you get back into the water.
-- It's can be extended -- seeing.
With blood and about seeing a half weeks late and three and a half weeks yeah.
I mean -- consumers weren't even he'll resume.
A lot I mean I've done this stitches off and I I thought I was gonna be able again a lot and then that doctors like okay -- -- -- of hearing and then.
As kind of a little sad I had dead this way and let -- -- -- on and by the time -- gotten a lot of hands.
Yes I mean had a quick recovery in us lest -- -- clean and -- -- -- this you know.
-- -- -- Bethany you've chosen not to wear a prosthesis what was the reason for that and in what was she thinking.
I guess -- young an I just IA.
It's really -- -- with my -- signing them eyes in an out of the -- have -- late may active prison and then.
So the prosthetic canas is something that this kind of -- then.
And for some people it can be very useful and an and really helpful on that I was but because -- -- so so it doesn't really help me that that's.
And I just I'm happy with the way that and an end.
You know I'm I don't need an -- and make myself beautiful oil and have a link that lets you know we're you at all afraid of going back into the water.
Confound me -- my fame that wasn't gonna be able to save fan -- do that being that I.
Since so many -- as -- Dave Bing as its name pass and then and I love and I just love being out man.
I mean -- your your incident with a shark.
Has kept millions out of the water but he didn't keep -- I'm trying to figure this out.
You go back again and all of us who haven't been eaten by a shark could we stay the heck out because we're afraid of it.
I am really -- it doesn't even above a lot a because you know ancestor and things happen I mean it's Monday insisted -- to the -- than actually getting a lot and so yeah I mean that I this.
If something that in either so they come at the hands of what -- -- -- -- out there looking for airwaves and just having fun and then.
It says the and man to man I -- Do you remember that day what happened could tell me what you recall.
I know you're thirteen you probably had a lot but what what you remember about paddling out there and then when the shark attack.
Yeah I was just sitting at my friends -- -- and -- it's a beautiful perfect day and others set and -- -- came out and knowing and I didn't see anything -- -- -- -- ran an ad -- fit and then those guys and there's just a -- -- that has alive I lost 760% of man but if and one thing I love about a new movie missiles are very coming out and sound.
The shark attacks in his day -- in and rich kids really you run not of really John anti us.
People want to hear your story Bethany because I think it inspires and it gives them a sense of hope that.
If you can overcome what you've -- and and not just did get back on the surfboard but to have such a wonderful attitude toward life what is the secret of that.
I guess it's of us have different things that motivate essence that at some length and and -- and -- just accessing god and his love -- And and just knowing that I -- on him in anything that I can do.
Is gonna make a difference in other people's lives and and that's -- -- -- And some people would would probably blamed god and -- be mad at him mature not mad at god.
-- -- I'd say it is a beautiful thing I see you make other -- that's come out of it and being above eight Sony implements bad and then -- and what they're going to end.
So it's exciting to see how it can really impact people -- -- -- saying my life and in each of us how does something special that we can -- And in case the people around -- and so I think it's something just seeing and skids other people that is.
