A 20 year old surfer was attacked by a shark at Jacksonville Beach, North Florida, USA.
Clayton Schultz needed more than 400 stitches in his foot.
The shark tried to grab the surfer's leg.
Schultz managed to hop back on the surfboard and then another surfer helped him get back to the shore.
Tiger sharks are very often seen in the Gulf of Mexico.
According to a study the chance of dying from a shark attack is 1 in 3.748.067.
Doctors believe Clayton Schultz was very lucky and that he will be back surfing in a few months.
