Shark Bites Girl's Ankle On Fla. Beach
NEW SMYRNA BEACH, Fla. (AP) - The Volusia County Beach Patrol says a 10-year-old girl is recovering following a shark attack in New Smyrna Beach.
Beach patrol Capt. Jack Driskell said the girl returned to the sand to play after the Saturday morning incident. She didn't suffer serious injuries.
The 10-year-old was in murky water when the shark nipped on her right ankle, which was later bandaged. The shark left six puncture wounds.
