A female in her 30’s or 40’s may have be bitten on the foot while wading in knee deep water.  She was apparently playing with her dog, when the incident occurred.   Will update if more info comes available.

Mihaela “Mimi” Cosa told First Coast News while she was about to jump on her boogie board the shark bit her foot “It was like really bad. I felt like a shake and it would not let go of my foot”It could have taken a bite from here [calf] and it would be really hard to repair, so here, it is not that bad. So maybe I can still wear high heels!”

The 44 year old received 21 stitches to her right foot. The site also has a photo of the injury http://www.firstcoastnews.com/story/news/local/2014/05/14/shark-bite-jacksonville-beach/9096477/
