"As we were running ashore, the shark kept chasing us … It didn't stop until we were about 5 feet from the shoreline," Matt said in a phone interview Friday. "My brother said he saw the fear in our eyes."

Kure Beach officials confirmed Friday that a shark between 4- and 6-feet long bit Trang, 28, about 5 p.m. Wednesday in the vicinity of the H Avenue beach access. The attack occurred about 15 feet from shore in about a foot of water.
