Florida boy expected to fully recover from shark bite

WPTV is reporting that a 6-year-old boy bitten by a shark off a Florida beach is expected to regain full use of his leg. Nickolaus Bieber was bitten on his upper-thigh near Juno Beach Pier on Tuesday (6/26) evening.

Dr. David Rankin told WPTV that Bieber will be walking again after “some work is done.” Rankin expects that it will be at least a week and possibly up to two months before Beiber will be walking again. Beiber’s parents told the press that their son is doing well.

While the species involved in the attack has not been determined, 6-year-old Bieber says he saw the shark as it approached and is “positive” it was a bull shark (Carcharhinus leucas).
