Teen bitten by shark describes ordeal

MYFOXNY.COM -

Michael Adler, 16, was having the time of his life on Saturday morning when something went terribly wrong.

Adler was bitten by a shark while surfing in Florida.

A man on shore with military training helped save him.

"I really have felt that much pain. I was on one of my last waves, I took the wave pretty far in. I jumped off the board and as soon as I got back on the shark bit my foot. I thought it was going to come get me again. I paddled as fast as I could back to shore," Adler told Good Day NY.

Adler was only in about four feet of water.

"We think it was a bull shark because that's the most common one around here," said Adler.

    Comedian Richard Lewis and 'Curb Your Enthusiasm' creator Larry David go way back.  "We went to camp (as kids), hated him, never saw him again. I started at the Improv, no longer here, and he was a fan. I was drinking back then and I said 'I hate you.' We had a fistfight at a bar and we bonded. We love each other and yet we annoy each other," said Lewis. The pair was quite the comedic duo on the hit HBO show.
