Robles, 40, was weak and sore a day after the attack near the Manhattan Beach pier, he told CNN. Robles said he was in a “complete state of panic” when he came face to face with the 7-foot shark, but “pure instinct” kicked in. “I saw this shark eye to eye, staring at me as it was crunching into my chest.” He grabbed its nose and pried it away from his chest, he said. The shark, which a fire official said was a juvenile great white, immediately swam away and did not return, Robles said. The great white was apparently agitated after struggling for its life for the previous half hour before the attack on Robles. A fisherman who used chum to attract sharks to the pier had cut it loose after hooking it but failing to land it, Robles said.

Robles, who would swim two miles from the Hermosa Beach pier to the Manhattan Beach pier each Saturday, said he is afraid to go back into the water. “I hope I do someday, but it’s off the table right now.” He spent a restless night Saturday, waking up from nightmares, he said. The aftermath of the attack was recorded on cell phone video by someone on the beach who was alerted by the screaming. CNN affiliate KTLA posted the video on its website. It shows a group of swimmers frantically trying to reach shore with the victim screaming loudly from the water and people on the pier urging him to hurry, yelling that the shark was still close by. Manhattan Beach Pier has been closed until Tuesday, police said in a news release.

Later, it also took out what it said was a Hamas command center embedded within a civilian building. Palestinian medical official Ashraf al-Qidra reported at least 15 people dead, including at least five civilians. Raw: Israeli Airstrike Kills 10 in Gaza Strip Play Video Among the dead were six people, including two children, killed in an airstrike that flattened the concrete home of a Hamas leader in the southern town of Khan Younis, Hamas officials said. The blast set off a scene of panic as crowds of people, some of them bloodied, fled the smoldering remains. Screaming Palestinians took away motionless bodies, including what appeared to be the two children. A separate airstrike on a motorcyclist killed two people, including a young boy who was passing by, al-Qidra said. Late Tuesday, Israeli troops shot and killed four militants who tried to infiltrate a military base in southern Israel by sea.
