    A teenage boy in Lake Worth nearly had his arm severed in a machete attack by another teen on Friday.

    According to CBS12.com the two teenagers got into a fight shortly after Lake Worth High School let out on Friday afternoon. The fight is believed to be over a girl. One of the teenagers used a machete to partially severe the teen's arm near the elbow.

    The Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office is currently looking for the machete-wielding teen, while the victim remains hospitalized at St. Mary's Medical Center.

    The fight was captured by another teenager on Facebook-live streaming, which helped the police identify the teenager with the machete.
