A family member reportedly jumped in the water and "beat the shark" until the girl was freed.The teen was airlifted to a Tallahassee hospital with serious injuries.

Taylor County Sheriff Wayne Padgett later said that it "looks like she’s going to lose her leg," but she’s expected to survive.RELATED: Fisherman bitten by shark near Bahamas rescued by Coast GuardShark attacks increased around the world in 2021 following three consecutive years of decline, and a new study says sharks are swimming closer to crowded beaches than previously thought. Florida has led the U.S. and the rest of the world in unprovoked shark bites for decades, and the trend continued in 2021, researchers said.

Canada, 6 other countries leave Arctic Council over Russia’s war in Ukraine Vandal, speaking to reporters on Monday, said he was “looking forward” to the signing of the agreement and would attend the ceremony.He said “discussions have been going on for a long time” and “the important part is that the deal got done and we are going to have the signing tomorrow.”“I think it’s very positive given our world situation today,” he said.The deal is likely to mean that Canada, for the first time, shares a land border with Denmark.The dispute over the small island has led to good-natured jostling since the 1980s between Canada and Denmark over which country rightfully owns it.In 1984, Canada planted a flag on the island and left a bottle of Canadian whisky.Later that year, Denmark’s minister of Greenland affairs visited by helicopter, planting a Danish flag.

She then added: "I was suffering horrendous pain – literally feeling like I’d been stabbed in the stomach – just awful. "And it was causing me so many issues."Big TMI!" Molly-Mae then joked, before sharing: "But my sex life just became non-existent: it was just not part of our relationship."Having undergone surgery for the condition last year and shown off her scars from the procedure, the influencer and PrettyLittleThing Creative director said that her symptoms were so painful she felt like she’d "been hit by a car"."Mine have definitely worsened over the years, I cannot explain the levels of pain I have experienced."I have actually nearly called myself an ambulance on multiple occasions because of the level of pain that I was in."In the same video Molly-Mae explain how sex is "still painful" for her.
