Shark bites surfer's arm, he skips hospital and heads straight to the bar

funny shit 30/07/2019

American pro surfer Frank O'Rourke might just be the world's luckiest man.

The 23-year-old was catching a few waves in Florida over the weekend when a shark decided to have a nibble on his left arm according to News4Jax

"Craziest thing to have happened to me in my life," O'Rourke told The Florida Times-Union. "I felt something jump out of the water and latch onto my arm by my elbow. It just grabbed onto me and thrashed in the water and swam away."

He told ABC the shark "tasted me and was like, 'Nope.'"

One of O'Rourke's friends saw it all go down. "It was kind of panic, like, 'Did that just happen?'" the friend told News4Jax. "It kind of took him a couple seconds to, like, gather himself and realize, like, 'Wow, I just got bit by a shark,' and then we all went into the beach."

After getting back to the beach, O'Rourke skipped out on medical attention, despite a SHARK trying it on just a few minutes before.

Instead he did the sensible thing.

"He immediately went to a bar 'cause he was like, 'I got bit by a shark,' and people were like, 'I'll buy you drinks.' So he went and hung out at the pier," the friend told News4Jax.

Unreal. O'Rourke was about as chill as you could be about the whole thing!

"If it’s your time, it's your time," he said. "If the [sharks] want you, they want you. You're more likely to get struck by lightning than killed by a shark. I'm going to buy a lottery ticket!

"I'm very lucky that I still have an arm. You can see the jawline, like where the jawline is of the shark ... There's still blood on my surfboard."
