SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — A great white shark thwarted a Northern California man’s quest to become the first person to swim from the Golden Gate Bridge to the Farallon Islands.

After 18 hours in the frigid ocean, he reluctantly climbed into his support boat as the 12-to-15-foot great white circled the boat. ∞∞∞∞∞ SEE MORE ∞∞∞∞∞
