Shark attack surfer's survival story told by Disney film


Bethany Hamilton was 13 when she was attacked by a tiger shark during a morning surf, but despite losing an arm and 60% of her blood, she got back on her surfboard and made headlines around the world.

Doctors were not convinced she could recapture her championship form, but she was determined, and now the film Soul Surfer tells her story.
