Shark Attacks Caused by Humans in Shark's Territory: Experts Say

Doctors are trying to save the life of a young boy after a horrifying shark attack this weekend in the shallow waters off Pensacola, Florida. The incident has focused new attention on the risk of shark attack during a swim at the beach. CBS News correspondent Bobbi Harley has the story.

From the beach, the waters along Florida's Panhandle look enticing. But from the air, the view is different: Swimmers there are not alone. Sharks are swimming with them.

The danger was never more evident than on Friday night, when 8-year-old Jessie Arbogast was playing in knee-deep water when a 7-foot-long bull shark attacked.
