ST. AUGUSTINE, Fla. -- Connor Baker, 9, is doing fine, but he experienced quite a scare after he was bitten by a shark Sunday.

The St. Johns County Fire and Rescue Department confirmed the child was bitten by a shark around noon while netting with some friends south of the Ocean Trace Ramp in St. Augustine Beach.

The injury was minor, but required Baker to be transported to Flagler hospital and receive nine stitches.

Lieutenant Snell says the shark was about four feet long.
