Kai Rittgers, 14, suffered minor lacerations to his left foot after being bitten by a small shark while surfing off Melbourne Beach in Brevard County, Florida, USA. The incident happened 19 November 2012.
“It was like this sharp little pain, then I kind of sat up really quick and saw it was a shark,” Kai was quoted as saying.
He managed to paddle to shore. His dad took him to a doctor who bandaged the wounds. No stitches were needed.
No other details were reported.
