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

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.
