California man talks about being bitten by Great White Shark (VIDEO)

A man who was attacked by a great white shark off a Southern California beach is describing how quickly a routine swim turned into a bloody nightmare.

Steven Robles was in the water off Manhattan Beach near Los Angeles when the 7-foot juvenile shark suddenly appeared Saturday morning.

He tells KABC-TV that the shark looked at him and "locked into my chest."

Robles was taken to shore and by Sunday morning had been released from the hospital.

Witnesses said the shark had been hooked by a fisherman on a nearby pier and was thrashing in the water for more than 30 minutes before biting Robles about 300 yards off shore.

The beach, crowded over the holiday weekend, was eventually reopened.
