(WJAR) Rhode Island native Colin Cook is still coming to grips with the shark attack that cost him a leg.
“It definitely hasn’t been easy, but I’m keeping my head up and staying positive. Keep moving forward,” Cook says.
He’s now moving on a new prosthetic leg. He’s been walking on it for about three weeks.
“It’s definitely been a lot of work getting used to it. It’s almost like re-learning how to walk,” he says.
Cook had moved to Hawaii four years ago.
He surfed every day and built a business making surf boards.
Last October, while surfing Oahu’s North Shore, he was attacked by a shark and lost his left leg as a result.
“I definitely think about it,” Cook said. “And it’s kind of funny — people come up to me all the time and are like, ‘Oh, what happened to you?’ And I tell them and they don’t believe me.”
