(FOX NEWS) A North Carolina woman’s Bahamas vacation turned into a nightmare after she said a shark attacked her last week, biting off her right arm.

Tiffany and James Johnson were enjoying the last stop of their cruise vacation, WSOC reported. The mother of three encountered the shark while snorkeling in a shallow reef.

“I wasn’t in pain, it just felt like I had bumped into something so I just casually turned to my right to look to see and that’s when I was face-to-face with the shark,” Tiffany Johnson told the news station.
