ORLANDO, Florida (WESH) -- A central Florida teenager the state's latest shark bite victim Saturday morning.
Brevard County Fire Rescue spokesman Lt. Don Slayman said 16-year-old Michael Adler was bitten on the ankle and taken to a hospital for treatment.
Slayman said paramedics who treated the patient did not declare a trauma alert, meaning that the injury was not life-threatening.
The Fort Lauderdale teen said despite his trauma, he was more upset about missing out on the waves.
"I was making sure my surfing buddies got pictures. I was madder about missing the waves, not the shark," said Adler.
The teen said he was on his surfboard in the waters when he felt a tug on his foot.
"I felt like, its head move and I felt a lot of teeth, but I wasn't really in pain. I thought it was pretty cool that I just got bit by a shark because it hasn't happened to many people," said Adler.
