Florida Man Punches Shark That Bit Him

by at .

Josh Green, a student at University of Central Florida, was swimming last week when a shark tore into his leg.

Of course, Josh did what any man with a set would do, he punched the shark.

Green told Knight News, UCF’s college newspaper,  “I didn’t realize it was a shark until I punched it, thinking it was someone messing with me and then felt the face.”

Although Green got in a punch, the shark got the best of the fight.

Green had to get 18 stitches in his foot, ankle, and calf.

Green recalls, “When I hit it, my foot was sort of released and I just swam to shore as fast as possible. I limped out over to my friends and they brought me up to the lifeguard.”

The lifeguard suspects it was a black tip shark. Whatever it was that he attacked, Green posted pics of his wounds, and they are nasty.

He captioned the photos “sharkbait hoo haha.”
