"I'm looking through the pink of the water, through my own blood, and taking huge, huge, breaths of air," Rodney Fox says, "and through it, I see the head. Getting bigger."
It was December 1963. Fox was taking part in a spearfishing competition when a Great White shark plowed into him, grabbing his torso and dragging him below. It was a day that forever altered his course.
Fox was left with more than 360 stitches and a piece of tooth that is, a half century later, still embedded in his right wrist.
