Shark attack survivor Mikey Adler: "I survived, so that's always a positive"

Just days after feeling a large shark chomp down on his leg, this evening Mikey Adler joins "Piers Morgan Live" with details of the experience, in the process displaying a fun-loving sense of humor.

The 16-year-old high school freshman was surfing in Florida when he felt the pain, and taking a seat "In The Chair" tonight, he explains to Piers Morgan that he feels fortunate:

"Not many people get bit by a shark so, I feel, pretty lucky. And I survived, so that's always a positive," says Adler.

"Do you feel lucky that you survived, or lucky that you got bitten and can tell this great story?" asks the host.

"Both," laughs the guest. "Not many people can say that they got bit by a shark."

After the incident Adler changed the name on his twitter account to "Shark Bait," displaying the type of perspective you might expect from a teen whose biggest regret was missing the rest of the days surfing:

"Of course I'm going to go back into the water, I'm really excited. I was mad that I was missing the waves," says the teen who received 40 stitches. "It was some of the best waves I ever surfed. When I was laying down at the beach I was just looking at the perfect waves, wishing I could go back in."

Watch the clip and listen to the interview, then tune in tonight at 9 as Adler shares details of the quick-thinking man with military training who helped save him from further trauma.

    This is why Boz Wetsuits invented a shark repelling wetsuit.

    Thank goodness Sir Adler survived.
