Jameson's uncle wrote on Facebook that the boy was able to stay afloat after the attack. His family pulled him out of the water into their boat and put a tourniquet on his leg over the bite. They then stopped another boat with a nurse on board.

Jameson was rushed ashore and taken by helicopter to a children's hospital.

“They had to amputate his leg just below the knee to save his life as it was not working due to shark damage,” Jameson’s uncle wrote. "They said the shark made the decision for him and there was nothing they could do to save the leg."

According to his uncle, Jameson will be 11 years old in a couple of weeks.
