Doctors at Memorial Regional Hospital in Hollywood were working Sunday night to save the woman's fingers.

The woman told rescuers she had just speared a hogfish underwater and was ascending back to a private boat when the blacktip shark attacked, shredding some of her fingers.

The victim was flown from the Bahamas by Trinity Air Ambulance International to Fort Lauderdale, where she was then rushed to the emergency room in Hollywood for surgery.
