ORMOND BEACH, Florida (WESH) - A 17-year-old bitten on the shoulder by a shark in Ormond Beach, Florida is recovering after receiving 30 stitches.
Raushod Floyd plays football for Seabreeze High School. He said he can't wait to get back on the gridiron, but that he won't be swimming in the ocean any time soon.
"A wave hit me from behind and then the shark I guess hit me in my neck and I fell back in to the water," Floyd said.
The bite happened near the 100 block of Ocean Shore Boulevard, not far from the busy Granada Boulevard beach approach.
"I look at my friend and he just keep backing away from me and then I grabbed my arm and I looked and I just started showing everybody that I was bleeding," Floyd said.
