TAYLOR COUNTY, Fla. - A Florida teenager who fought off a shark that attacked her in Taylor County will have to have her leg amputated.

Addison Bethea, 17, of Perry, Florida, was scalloping with her brother, Rhett, off the coast of Keaton Beach when she felt something tap her leg.

Just seconds later, she was being pulled underwater by an estimated 9-foot shark. "She was fighting the shark. She tried to pull it off of her leg with her bare hands," her mother told FOX 35 News. "She’s got bite marks on her hand."Addison is being treated at Tallahassee Memorial HealthCare where she has undergone two surgeries already.
