A 23-year-old woman was bitten by a small nurse shark in Boca Raton, and taken to the hospital with the shark still attached to her arm, reported The Florida Sun Sentinel.

A spokesperson for the Boca Raton Ocean Rescue told the newspaper that the woman remained calm and there was a little blood. A splint board was used to support the woman’s arm and the shark as she lay on the stretcher.

The Boca Raton Regional Hospital operator told the AP that the woman had been treated and was in the process of being released Sunday afternoon.
