Lucy Magnum, 6, had the bad fortune of being attacked by a shark at a North Carolina beach. Her story is a lot like what we've heard in the past: She was in shallow water when a shark came out of nowhere and took a bite out of her leg. She's fine, but she had 90 percent muscle and tendon tear and it'll take physical therapy before she's running around again.
What struck us about her story, though, is what the 6-year-old said about the shark that attacked her.
First, according to an interview with NBC's Today, at the hospital, she told her parents, "I hate sharks. I like dolphins way better."
And, then, after her parents explained to her that the shark had made a mistake, that it really didn't want to eat her, Lucy changed her mind.
"I don't care that the shark bit me," her mother Jordan Magnum said she told her. "I forgive him."
