New Delhi: In a rare case, a 23-year-old woman bitten by a shark in Boca Raton, Florida, was taken to the hospital on Sunday with the animal still attached to her arm, CBS affiliate WPEC reported.

It is said that the baby nurse shark died before the fire rescue team arrived on the scene, but still remained attached to the woman's arm.

A spokesperson for the Boca Raton Ocean Rescue told the South Florida Sun-Sentinel that the woman remained calm and there was a little blood. A splint board was used to support the woman's arm and the shark as she lay on the stretcher.

The woman, whose name has not been revealed, was in stable condition.
