Shark Attacks Injure 2 at Florida Beach

Two people were allegedly attacked by sharks in Fernandina Beach Florida on July 13

Two people were allegedly attacked by sharks in Fernandina Beach Florida on July 13

Just three minutes after the first bite was reported around 3:30pm, Fernandina Beach personnel arrived on the scene.

Both patients are reportedly stable with non-life-threatening injuries, and neither victim could specifically advice what type or size of marine life had caused their injuries, according to City of Fernandina Beach Government.

Florida is no stranger to shark sightings.

Two people are in stable condition after being bitten by a shark in northern Florida. When fully grown, bull sharks reach 7 to 11 feet in length and weigh between 200 and 300 pounds. Neither victim got a clear look at what bit them.

Theobald said he didn't feel the pain from the shark bite until he got to the hospital.

One of the victims, Dustin Theobald, told ABC News that he was lying on a surfboard in about 2 feet of water, watching his son paddle out on a board, when he felt something grab onto his foot. "When I did that, he shook twice, then released and left". "He laid down at the lifeguard stand and they just went to wrapping and gauzing".

A 17-year-old boy was bitten no more than five minutes after Theobald, First Coast News reported.

Mike Webb also spotted the 30 year-old man getting out of the water.

'You could see bone on the top and on the bottom, ' the witness said on the injury.

"Maybe a minute later there were people already coming down with their sirens on to help him out, that all happened before I even got off the beach", Walker said.

Before that afternoon, only four shark attacks had been recorded in Nassau County in the last 135 years, according to the Florida Museum of Natural History, compared to more than 800 across the state.

Double red flags were raised at all guarded beaches in the area closing the water to the public until further notice.

Officials with the Division of Ocean Rescue are investigating the reported incidents and plan to patrol the area before reopening the beaches.
