"I was screaming for my life: 'Out of the water! Shark, shark!'" said Shorten. "I yelled 'Out of the water' because I thought the shark would go this way for more of a meal and chase someone else for more than just a foot."
Paramedics treated Shorten on the scene and said he will be just fine.
Shorten was in good humor tending to his bandaged foot Friday and even got a souvenir to remember the experience: a piece of shark tooth that doctors dug out of his foot.
