A Florida teenager is recovering after being bitten by a shark.

David Zettle, 15, of Edgewater, Florida left the hospital Thursday with about 30 stitches, and his foot and leg still wrapped. He was surfing Wednesday afternoon at New Smyrna Beach when a shark bit his left foot.

"Next thing I know I just like step into the shark in his mouth and he latched on, then I tried to like jerk away and he bit me again," Zettle said.

Zettle says he'll surf at New Smyrna Beach again, if the waves are good. He and his parents are optimistic there is no permanent damage to his foot.
