Teen bitten by shark in Brevard Co.
MELBOURNE BEACH, Fla. -- A teen is recovering Sunday morning after being bitten by a shark.
It happened in Melbourne Beach in Brevard County.
Fire rescue crews said he was already out of the water when they arrived.
The victim, Michael Adler, appears like he will be okay.
But his reaction to the bite was a little out of the ordinary.
"But I wasn't in that much pain at all. I thought it was pretty cool that I just got bit by a shark because it hasn't really happened to too many people," Adler said.
Rescue crews took him to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
Brevard County passed Volusia County as the number one county in Florida for shark attacks.
