CNN– A Brevard County teenager was bit by a shark on the ankle on Saturday

Fire rescue crews said he was already out of the water when they arrived.

The victim, Michael Adler, said he thought the incident was pretty cool.

“But I wasn’t in that much pain at all. I thought it was pretty cool that I just got bit by a shark because it hasn’t really happened to too many people.”

Rescue crews took him to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

He had to have surgery on his foot for four torn tendons.

Brevard County passed Volusia County as the number one county in Florida for shark attacks.
