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.
