Surfer bitten by shark in Florida

15yo

Hilton Mantooth,

Hilton Mantooth was surfing around 11am today at New Symrna Beach Florida.  The  15-year-old was bitten on the right foot about 100 yards from shore and made it back to the beach on his own.

He was  waiting for a wave with his toes dangling in the water.

Mantooth’s mother, Julie Mantooth told Wesh.com “He has a severed tendon in the big toe and the concern is infection from a shark bite into the bone,” said

A second surfer, Kevin Ross  was bitten 30 minutes later. An abundance of bait fish and choppy water could be to blame.
