A young boy shared his survival story after a terrifying encounter in the keys.
Jameson Reeder Jr. lost part of his leg, below the knee, in a shark attack south of Big Pine Key last month.
The 11-year-old snorkeled during his family vacation when a bull shark attacked.
“He looks into my eyes as I’m holding him just like this in front of me he says ‘Daddy, Jesus is gonna save me,’” said Jameson’s father.
“I’m happy to be alive and that nine-foot bull shark should have taken me down,” said Jameson.
Jameson underwent four surgeries at Nicklaus Children’s Hospital.
He will be fitted for a prosthetic leg and he said he is looking forward to getting back into the water.
