Colorado boy injured in shark attack during spring break in Mexico

A Colorado boy recovers from a shark attack while on spring break in Mexico.

Denver7 spoke with 10-year-old Dillon Armijo, who says he was bitten by a shark while visiting Cancun, Mexico on March 17.

“We went to the beach and we wanted to swim or jump in the waves and then five minutes later like a shark just came down, a wave and bit my leg,” Dillon said.

After spending four days in hospital in Mexico, he was airlifted to Colorado Children’s Hospital in Aurora.

He had to undergo several surgeries but his mother, Abby Armijo, said he could walk again.
