Scuba diver Jimmy Plumer, 35, recounts being attacked by a 7-foot sandbar shark that bit his shoulder and shook him like a rag doll.  Plumer, a veteran spear fisherman and diver who was about 34 miles east of Jacksonville Beach, Florida, struggled with the shark and grazed him with his spear gun.  A Coast Guard helicopter took him to shore, and he received gashes on his left shoulder and biceps.  The shark on the wall is one he caught four years earlier. <br />
