Approximately 4 miles (6.5 kilometers) of beach will stay closed until at least 7 a.m. Monday, officials said.

The teenage boy who was seriously injured Saturday when he was bitten by a shark off the Encinitas shoreline has seen his condition improve Sunday, a spokesman for Rady Children's Hospital said.

Hayes was upgraded Sunday from "critical" to "serious" condition.

'It's probably like ten feet of blood behind him. "He flops on top of my kayak and his whole clavicle and back is exposed", he told CBS.

'The boy's parents want to inform family, friends and the entire community that he is expected to make a full recovery, ' the hospital statement said.

"I realized he was yelling, 'I got bit, help, help!'" Chad Hamme, a kayaker, told the Los Angeles Times. 'We told him he's going to be okay, he's going to be alright - we got help. After the initial attack, good samaritans got the teen onto a kayak, applied pressure to the wound, and got him to the beach.

I believe in people being able to have their own opinions, even if really different from mine. "When you have three kids, it's kind of a wild household".

"He said, 'Mom, the chances are so much more slim of a second bite, '" Hayes said.

The incident happened around 7am on the opening day of California's spiny lobster season and people looking for the creatures themselves were horrified to come across the attack at Beacon's Beach in Encinitas.

Lifeguards and police officers using jet skis and drones searched in vain for the shark in the waters off Encinitas, 25 miles north of San Diego.

The boy was diving in about 9 feet (2.7 meters) of water approximately 150 yards (137 meters) offshore when he was attacked.

California Fish and Game, the San Diego County Sheriff's Department, the city of Solana Beach and the city of Carlsbad were working with Dr. Chris Lowe from California State University, Long Beach, to determine the type of shark that caused the injury.

Scientists say sharks are attracted to the warmer-than-average waters closer to shore, increasing dangers on both coasts. He didn't want to give up yet'. They also wished to thank the medical staff at Rady Children's Hospital where Hayes is recovering. A boy was attacked by a shark on September 29, 2018. It comes two weeks after a 26-year-old man was killed by a shark off Cape Cod in MA, the state's first such fatality in 80 years.
