PLEASANT VIEW- A Tennessee man was attacked by a shark while on vacation near Destin, Florida earlier this month. He survived but found himself on deaths doorstep again. 39-year old Terrell Moore came down with a life threatening infection when his body wouldnt respond properly to the antibiotics. On top of that, the bite marks in his foot were not healing properly. A local doctor, Dr. Fred Nordquist took on Moores case and did extensive research to help treat his unusual injury. Moore received emergency shots and was given a different kind of antibiotics. His body is responding to the treatment but it will still take several more weeks to make a full recovery.
