Only in Florida, man.

According to a report from local news outlet FOX 13, a 39-year-old Florida man was attacked by a shark while enjoying the waters near Siesta Key.

Instead of getting immediate medical attention, however, the man managed to walk home while bleeding profusely from his wounds.

The man was eventually transported to the local hospital, per Sarasota County Fire Rescue and hospital staff.

While the man was walking home, a neighbor called 911 when they noticed he was “bleeding to death.” The neighbor followed instructions from emergency operators in an effort to halt the bleeding until they arrived.

The man suffered wounds to his hand and arm.
