Shark Attack Investigation: The Paige Winter Story is a brand new special premiering July 12th on National Geographic. 4 days later (July 16th) it will debut on Disney+. It tells an incredible true life story of survival and forgiveness.
Synopsis: Paige Winter was only 17 years old when she lost a leg and portion of her hand to a shark. Experts unpack the details of Paige’s attack to determine what kind of shark is responsible and what can be done, if anything, to avoid this happening again.
