Jeremy Porter posted photos and videos of the incident on Jensen beach on social media. The footage shows that the swimmer came out of the water holding a nurse shark, which clung to his arm.
Firefighters arrived to help a man with an unusual problem-it was necessary to force the predator to unclench its teeth. They poured alcohol on the shark’s face, trying to force it to let go of the victim.
Porter said the fish gave up after about 20 minutes and was released into the water.
Researchers believe that nurse sharks are usually not dangerous to humans but can attack them if provoked.
