Last week, when a 3-meter-footed shark attacked her, Addison Bethe A is best to dodge the attacks that hit her.
A 17-year-old Florida teenagercalmly said he had counterattacked CNNfrom the hospital bed as much as possible.
"I wasn't sure what to do, but I knew I had to hit my nose to remove the shark, so I couldn't beat her around. Her legs at the Tallahassee Memorial Hospital.
"So I just started sucking it on my face, then poked its eyes, and I tried to hook it from me with my fingers," said Bethea. And then it bit my hand. "
Fortunately, her brother Let Willingham was with her — and he's a firefighter and emergency medical technician. ..
Willingham heard her sister scream, but he couldn't see her underwater because her predator had already pulled her under her.
"Then she came out of the water and I saw sharks and blood and all of them, and I swam over there and dropped (sharks).
Willingham put his sister on a boat and tried to stop the blood loss by putting a tourniquet on his injured leg.
When the attack took place, the brothers went out looking for scallops right next to Keaton Beach in Florida.
Bethea is stuffing toy sharks everywhere in the hospital bed, "just downplaying the situation," she said. Her father also commented on her jokes and a bright approach on social media.
"She first asked for Wendy's Frosty," he posted.
"She has experienced more than I imagined, but she is a soldier. Please pray for her and her daily difficulties. She is out of the woods at once. Not, but alive. That's the most important thing for us. "
Bethea said she would return to the water as soon as she was fully recovered.
