9-year-old boy fights off shark in south Fla.


SOUTH FLORIDA - A 9-year-old south Florida boy shared his story of survival after he fought off a shark.

Sebastian Cozzan was on his surf board last weekend at John D. MacArthur Beach State Park near North Palm Beach, when a shark dragged him underwater.

Cozzan said he reacted quickly.

"I just like, kicked the shark inside the mouth and it just, like, got hurt, I think. Then, it just went away for a few minutes and I went back into the shore," said Cozzan.

Sebastian walked away with minor injuries.
