A 10-year-old Palm City girl who “fought a shark and won” is now recovering at home.

Jasmine Carney was released Thursday from Palm Beach Children's Hospital at St. Mary's Medical Center in West Palm Beach.

WFLX spoke with Carney from her hospital bed earlier this week.

Carney recalled swimming in the ocean at Hobe Sound Beach when she felt something grab her.

"It looked pretty big and it was gray," she said. "It hurt, so I'm like, kick it (and) run away."

Her surgeon described severe injury to Carney's right foot.

"There's a piece missing," Dr. Nir Hus said, adding that she should make a full recovery in a few months.
