Shark attack victim: 'I was screaming for help!'

- Chucky Luciano was surfing on Sunday at New Smyrna Beach when he was attacked by a shark.

 "Freaking out just pushed it away from me, punched it, you know, and it just kept doing circles around me and i was like please just leave me alone," told FOX 35 News.

He has bite marks on both hands.

"I just turned around and started paddling with one arm toward the beach, trying to keep the more hurt arm out of the water. Finally a wave came and pushed me in, and i was just screaming for help," Luciano said.

Luciano had surgery at Halifax Hospital in Daytona Beach  and is now recovering at home in Miami.

He is one of three people bitten by a shark sunday at New Smyrna Beach.

A GoFundMe account has been set up to help Luciano pay medical bills.
