    PONTE VEDRA BEACH, Fla. - A man told St. Johns County Fire Rescue that he saw a shark bite his arm on Ponte Vedra Beach on Sunday afternoon.

    The man, who is in his 60s, told a Ponte Vedra Beach couple that he was wading in knee-deep water and saw a 3- to 4-foot shark and that couple called 911.

    The couple tells Action News Jax that the man was able to walk out of the water by himself and was losing a lot of blood.
