Teen bit by shark, didn't realize it

Posted: Updated:
TEXAS - A 14-year-old girl was bit by a shark on a Texas beach.

She was waist-deep in the water and didn’t realize what happened.

Mikaela Medina says she felt something hit her back but didn't feel any pain or see the shark. She went to shore so her mother could take a look.

"She’s the one who told me I had gotten bit,” said Medina. “After she told me I was bleeding I started crying.”

The two ran to the family's nearby beach house.

A family friend who is a doctor happened to be there and treated the teen on the spot.

Luckily, she didn’t need any stitches or additional medical help.
