ST. AUGUSTINE BEACH, FL (AP) - A surfer is recovering from surgery on his foot after being bitten by a shark in the waters off a northeast Florida beach.

Andrew Birchall tells The St. Augustine Record that he was surfing late Thursday morning when a shark bit his foot. Other surfers helped Birchall back to shore.

Birchall says the shark left behind a tooth in the wound.

St. Johns County Fire Rescue paramedics took Birchall to a hospital where he had surgery to repair torn tendons.
