Boy (13) 'badly wounded' after attack by shark in chest-deep water
A Florida police spokesman says a 13-year-old boy was badly hurt after a shark attack.
Neptune Beach police spokesman Michael Key says the boy and his stepfather were swimming in chest-deep water Sunday afternoon when the shark attacked.
The boy was rushed to the hospital to be treated for an 8-inch bite behind his right knee and top of his calf.
He says the injuries were not believed to be life-threatening.
Neptune Beach police say it was the first shark attack of the season at the beach.
