Michael Wilson was injured by shark in Palm Beach, Florida today.
The 12-year-old was in around three feet of water when a shark bit his left foot.
He was taken to St. Mary’s Medical Center for treatment of the bruised foot and minor lacerations.
The beach in Ocean Reef Park was closed this afternoon as a precaution.
This is the eighth bite of 2016 and the first in Florida.
The location has been marked on the 2016 shark attack bites tracking map.
