LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) - An Indiana family's Florida vacation came to a screeching halt, after an 8-year-old boy was bit by a shark.

Aadyn Crick said he was just playing in the surf when he felt pressure on his knee. He said it only took a second before he started screaming.

"I just heard him scream, and I turned around and he was within several arms reach and I pulled him up out of the water, and I could see the bone on his knee," said Crick's mother, Michelle Jarman.

Crick was rushed to the hospital and immediately underwent surgery.

His leg had been sliced wide open. Crick sustained a six to seven inch long cut that ran more than an inch deep.

Doctors say he has ligament and cartilage damage in his knee and it could be a couple of months before he is able to put weight on his knee.
