Superwoman: pregnant wife rescues her husband from a shark attack
Not long after Andrew entered the water, it turned red with blood.

Margot (29), however, reacted with lightning speed. When she saw the shark fin, the pregnant woman immediately dove into the water and pulled her wounded husband back to the boat.
Margot successfully got him to safety, but the bite on his shoulder was serious.
After receiving medical care from first responders Andrew was flown to the Ryder Trauma Center in Miami, the local sheriff's office said.
The attack and Margot Dukes heroic deed happened on Sunday at Sombrero Key Light, a lighthouse near the town of Marathon, Florida.
Witnesses confirmed the shark attack to People magazine. The animal was described as a large, aggressive bull shark.
