By: Laura Murgatroyd - Marine Times

A Marine veteran saved his daughter from a life-threatening shark attack in North Carolina by punching the shark five times on the nose until it released the 17-year-old girl from its deadly grip, according to  local reports .
Paige Winters had deep lacerations and bites in her leg, pelvis and hands when admitted to Vidant Medical Center in Greenville just after the 12:20 p.m. attack on Fort Macon Beach, the  hospital reported . Paige lost several fingers and her left leg had to be amputated above the knee, but her injuries could have been fatal if not for her father.
