Shark bite: our friend will be OK

A 10-year-old bodyboarder was bitten by a shark at Crescent Beach, Florida, USA.

Seth Shorten was attacked in his right foot. The shark's tooth was found inside the wound by rescue personnel. Fortunately, the young bodyboarder did not suffered major injuries.

The scientists believe that the east coast of Florida isn't more dangerous now than it was last year.

Florida is known for having smaller sharks like the blacknose, spinner, sharpnose and blacktip. Visit the Shark Attack Map.
