Nicole Moore had just finished playing beach volleyball at a resort in Cancun, when she went into the water to rinse off some sand.

Moments later, she was locked in the death grip of shark and was fighting for her life.

The Orangeville, Ont., woman describes her harrowing encounter from four years ago in a new book called "Shark Assault: An amazing story of survival," co-authored with Peter Jennings.

The story of a brutal shark attack that cost a woman her arm and much of her leg, and her death-defying recovery.

One of the most dreadful experiences humans fear is a shark attack. This horrifying agony is exactly what happened to Nicole Moore, a nurse from Orangeville, Ontario. It was an assault all the more brutal for being so unlikely — she was standing in waist-deep water at a Mexican resort. She came very close to dying, losing 60 percent of her blood from deep bites on her arm and leg, and was rushed to a hospital where she received a questionable level of medical care that left her and her family confronting physical and mental anguish. Surviving gruesome misery, including the amputation of her left arm and attempts to rebuild her disfigured leg, she has fought on to become a source of inspiration for those facing seemingly insurmountable challenges.
