A BIZARRE video shows the moment a man casually walks around a beach with a shark attached to his arm after the beast bit him and refused to let go.
The man can be seen attracting a crowd on Jensen Beach in Florida beach with small nursing shark, whose teeth are sunk into his arm.
In the video, stunned onlookers watch on as the man calmly holds the shark to avoid further injuries after he is thought to have been savaged while swimming.
A man can be heard saying: "if the shark is flipped, it will get dizzy and disoriented",forcing it to open its mouth.
But whenever the man makes an attempt to pull the shark away, it only bites down harder.
Other onlookers made fun of the situation by shouting, 'Shark lives matter', in reference to the Black Lives Matter movement.
According to the person who posted the video, the man had to be taken to the hospital in order for the shark to be removed and he is okay.
