NEW SMYRNA BEACH, Fla. (AP) — Authorities say a shark bit a man from Arizona who was boogie boarding off a beach on Florida's Atlantic coast.
Volusia County Beach Safety Ocean Rescue Capt. Andrew Ethridge tells news outlets the 49-year-old man had lacerations on his right thigh from his Saturday afternoon shark encounter. He was treated by paramedics and drove himself to a hospital for additional treatment.
Lifeguards at New Smyrna Beach didn't see the shark after the attack.
