The idea of being attacked by a shark is terrifying - however one brave young girl in Florida took it in her stride by kicking the marine creature away after it mauled her right foot.
In a report from NBC 6, 10-year-old Jasmine Carney was swimming on Hobe Sound Beach off the coast of Jupiter Island with her brother and grandmother on Sunday (27 November) when she fought off the shark and "won."
"Something grabbed me, so I'm like, 'don't you touch me!'" the lively little hero said.
Carney also described the shark as being gray and that it looked "pretty big" and it was gray.
