A shark has sneaked up on a young boy in the city of New Smyrna Beach, Florida.
According to the statement made by the authorities, the 11-year-old, visiting from the state’s Lake Wales city, was attending local Smyrna beach with his family. He was in the water, submerged waste-deep when the attack happened.
The original 911 call referred to “trauma” which first responders later identified as a shark bite to the boy’s right foot.
Apparently, the child’s injuries were not severe as he was not transported by an ambulance but left with his aunt in her car.
