Girl bitten by shark in NC


A teenage girl was bitten on the foot by a shark near Ocean Isle Beach NC.

The thirteen-year-old girl was boogie boarding when the shark bit the girl and her board.

The teen apparently suffered several lacerations to her foot.

The foam boogie board is missing two big pieces.

The shark is reported to be around four feet long.

Will update the article when more information is available.

This is the thirty-third shark bite attack of 2015, six of which were fatal and two of which were out of water (normally fisherman bitten by their catch).*

The location has been marked on the 2015 shark attack bites tracking map.

*The information is based on reported shark bites attacks TS is aware of. It is possible the number could be higher as the incidents are not reported or have been slow to reach the US.
