A 10-year-old Florida girl was amazingly able to shake off the trauma of being bitten by a shark, running back into the ocean to help her six-year-old friend. 

Kaley Szarmack was surfing at Jacksonville Beach last week when a four-foot-long, black-tipped shark bit her while she walked out of the water.

Despite her bleeding leg, Szarmack ran back into the ocean to grab her friend and warn her to get out of the water. 

"She is much, much smaller than me and pretty skinny too. [I thought] if that shark is still going after her, she's going to get much more hurt than this," she recalled.

Szarmack was hospitalized with lacerations on her leg, but will be OK.
