“I thought that was a dumb thing to say.  My brain couldn't register
that it was real.” Diana Noble of San Marcos was swimming 10 to 20
feet behind David Martin when she heard someone yell, “Shark!”   They
were part of a group of triathletes training, when a Great White bit
through both Martin's legs, leaving a massive pool of blood.  First
person to die from a shark attack in the area for 50 years.
