It is Shark Week! We know they are one of the apex predators of the ocean and they scare the heck out of humans, but they’re also extremely important in helping to maintain healthy ocean ecosystems! Kerri Olzewski from the Shedd Aquarium joined Good Day Chicago on Friday to teach us all about the fascinating creatures.
An American tourist has lost her leg after being bitten by a shark while vacationing in Turks and Caicos, police say.
A family member reportedly jumped in the water and “beat the shark” until the girl was freed.
The family, visiting from Minnesota, decided to head to the beach while they waited for their Miami Beach hotel room.
