ST. AUGUSTINE BEACH, Fla. (AP) - A surfer is recovering from surgery on his foot after being bitten by a shark in the waters off a northeast Florida beach.
Andrew Birchall tells The St. Augustine Record ( http://bit.ly/NhUaFU) that he was surfing late Thursday morning when a shark bit his foot. Other surfers helped Birchall back to shore.
Birchall says the shark left behind a tooth in the wound.
St. Johns County Fire Rescue paramedics took Birchall to a hospital where he had surgery to repair torn tendons.
