JENSEN BEACH, Fla. — A nurse shark latched onto a Florida man’s arm while he was swimming off the Atlantic coast over the weekend.
Martin County Fire Rescue said the man likely disturbed the shark, causing it to grab hold of his arm, WPEC reported.
Video shows the small shark’s teeth sunk into the man’s arm while he cradles it. Rescuers are seen trying to administer aid while a crowd forms around them.
The shark was released into the ocean after eventually letting go of the man’s arm.
