Shark Attack in Santa Barbara CA?
Lucas Ransom was surfing Friday morning between 50 and 100 yards offshore at Surf Beach, which is in Vandenburg Air Force Base, north of Santa Barbara CA, when the shark reared up out of the waves, pulled him under and bit off his leg.
The boy suffered a "massive wound" to his left leg and died shortly after. His friend was only two feet away during the attack.
Ransom looked at his friend a couple of feet away and said “Help me, dude,” before getting lost in the waves.
Have authorities identified the shark? What type of shark attacked this young boy?
