THE UNLIKELY PLACE THE PRO SURFER WHO LOST HER ARM DURING A SHARK ATTACK JUST MARRIED A CHRISTIAN MINISTER

by Liz Klimas

A decade after being attacked by a 14-foot tiger shark while surfing and losing her arm, professional surfer Bethany Hamilton is showing just how much she has conquered the incident, getting married over the weekend in the same area where she had been attacked.

Hamilton tied the knot with Christian youth minister Adam Dirks in Hawaii. Just 10 years before, at the age of 13, Hamilton was attacked while surfing off Kauai’s North Shore. She lost her arm and more than 60 percent of her blood, but her website states that “her strong water sense and faith in God helped get her through the traumatic ordeal.”

Even though it was near the location where her personal tragedy occurred, the now 23-year-old told E! Online Hawaii was the perfect setting for her wedding.

Today was the most beautiful, wonderful best day of my life! God is more than good(: Excited to live life with my husband Adam Dirks!
