Hello, thank you for using this service. I wish to introduce myself. I am Michael, a Research Librarian with 20+ years of experience.
From research done this afternoon, it is reported that sharks will not often attack a human as it is often mistaken identity. They are looking for other prey and humans are just something that is often thought of as "hit and run".
While it is rare that any human has been eaten by a shark, story a few years ago on a man that was inside a shark was reported:
Story also on how a man was found inside a shark as posted here:
By reading and seeing the not so nice pictures on the last link that you can see what parts of a body would be digested by a shark if it decides to eat a human.
I hope that this information was found useful as please inform me of any additional questions/concerns you have. Also if you could take a second to rate my assistance so that I know my help was found useful today.
The site listed above gives us a bit of understanding of what happens to the human body when eaten by a shark. Looking at these not easy to look at pictures can offer information on how a shark would digest someone:
Since sharks swallow whole what is food for them, a person would be a different type of thing to digest. From information on shark digestion, sharks digest too slowly to deal with the human body's high ratio of bone to muscle/fat. This is why, in general, great whites tend to stop an attack after the first bite.
In general as seen in the link above, a shark will leave the body intact overall as it is just too difficult to digest a human because of the ratio of bone and muscle.
