Shark Attacks In The Carolinas

At least five shark attacks have been reported at North and South Carolina beaches this month, writes CNN. The Washington Post puts the number at 7 attacks.

On Saturday afternoon, a beach outing in North Carolina took a harrowing turn when a 17-year-old boy was attacked by a shark.

The teenager was swimming with several other people near Waves, North Carolina, when the shark attacked, writes CNN.

The teen received various injuries to his right calf, buttocks and both hands, according to a news release posted to the facebook page of the Cape Hatteras National Seashore.  No other swimmers were injured, writes CNN.

Ocean Rescue Squad paramedics and National Park Service Rangers rushed to the scene in response to a 911 call about an injured person on the beach, writes CNN.  The teen was then transported to Norfolk, Virginia, for further medical treatment.
