Was it a Great White shark or not?
A woman kayaking near Catalina had quite a scare when she was dumped out of her boat by a shark. At first, Bettina Pereira thought she saw a whale swim under her, but by the time she realized it wasn't a whale, it had lifted the kayak out of the water and dumped her out.
Pereira is unhurt. Two men in a boat pulled up and helped her to shore, where her anxious husband and son were waiting. No word yet on what kind of shark it might have been. There have been reports of several Great White attacks up and down the coast, from Mexico to San Diego, in the past couple of months.
In the San Diego attack, a swimmer was killed.
