A Florida teenager was attacked by a shark on Saturday (May 4th), and he described the experience as 'pretty cool.'
The 16-year-old boy was surfing off Melbourne Beach when a bull shark bit through his ankle, ripping through four tendons and creating a wound that required 40 stitches.
A stranger rushed to the boy's aid as he limped out of the sea, and helped to save his foot which will take at least six
weeks to recover.
The teen is joking about the incident, changing his Twitter name to 'Shark Bait' and promising he won't be out of the surf for long.
He said, "I wish I could surf tomorrow. Not many people get bitten by a shark twice, so that's good. It lowers my chances."
