A 16-year-old boy who lost his arm in a shark attack off the North Carolina coast recently shared his story on “Good Morning America.”

“I feel something against my leg… it all happened very, very quickly,” Hunter Treschl said. “I’m thinking, ‘There’s no way this just happened, because there’s no pain,’ I didn’t feel anything.”

The Colorado teenager went on ABC News earlier this week for his first interview since he lost an arm in a June 14 shark attack.

Treschl was one of two people attacked by a shark at a beach in Oak Island on that day.

Kiersten Yow, 12, of Archdale, lost her left arm below the elbow and suffered injuries to her left leg.

Treschel was attacked about 90 minutes after Yow was and had his arm amputated beneath the shoulder.

Both incidents happened while they were standing in waist-deep water. There have been five shark attacks in North Carolina waters in about a two week span of time.
