New Smyrna Beach, Fla. (AP) -- Authorities cleared the water in New Smyrna Beach after two surfers were apparently bitten by sharks.
Volusia County Beach Patrol reports that a teenage boy and a young girl suffered bites within five minutes of each other Wednesday afternoon. They were both surfing in waist-deep water in the same area, but they weren't together.
Beach Patrol says the boy was taken by personal vehicle to a nearby hospital with cuts on his calf. The girl was taken by ambulance with a bite to the ankle.
The Daytona Beach News-Journal ( http://bit.ly/xdqUI1 ) reports that both victims described their shark as being about 4 or 5 feet long, but authorities says it's unlikely they were bitten by the same shark.
It wasn't immediately clear when the beach would be reopened.
