A man was bitten by a shark off Crystal Beach on Thursday morning.

Blaine Shelton, 42, says he was about 2,000 feet from shore when he saw the fin of a shark. He says he was alone in the water when he was bitten and had to swim back to shore.

Once on land, his friend was able to get him into a car. They flagged down a deputy who escorted them to an ambulance.

Shelton says the shark wound can't be stitched up because doctors are worried about infection from the water, so he will be in the hospital for at least four days.
