Florida leads worldwide in shark attacks


New this morning... It's something you don't want want to be true, but Florida took the lead when it comes to shark attacks.

The Sunshine State didn't just have the most attacks in the U.S. last year, it had the most attacks in the world. A report released by the University of Florida says there were 47 attacks in the country and with 23, Florida makes up nearly half of them.

Luckily, none of the attacks in the state were fatal. Alabama also had one attack and there were 72 attacks worldwide.
