Indiana boy recovers from possible shark bite

ORLANDO, Fla. - An Indiana boy was recovering in a Florida hospital after he was injured during vacation -- possibly by a shark.

Michelle Jarman said her 8-year-old son Aadyn and his friends were playing on the beach Monday when he felt something brush up against him.

Jarman said she heard her son start screaming, and when she pulled him out of the water, part of his knee bone was exposed.

Doctors said it was either a shark or a very sharp piece of metal that hurt Aadyn.

The young boy has already undergone one surgery in Florida. Aadyn's family said he will have to see an orthopedic specialist when they return to Indiana later in the week.
