Surfer Hits Bar Rather Than Hospital After Getting Bitten

Here’s the ultimate “just walk it off”. While out surfing on Saturday afternoon, a shark chomped down on Frank O’Rouke’s arm. But rather than run to the emergency room, the 23-year-old Florida man instead opted to hit the bar.

Keeping in good spirits after the Jacksonville Beach attack, O’Rourke shared a photo of his bloody arm to Instagram, thanking his friends for their help. According to the Orlando Sentinel, O’Rourke was the third person to be injured by a shark this month on The Sunshine State’s east coast. An hour later, a fourth man was bitten on the thigh while riding a boogie board.
