2 recovering from shark bites off Florida coast
DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) — A 12-year-old Florida boy and a 71-year-old man are recovering after being bitten by sharks in two separate encounters in New Smyrna Beach.
Volusia County officials say the man was standing in knee-deep water when he was bitten on his right foot.
The boy was bitten after jumping off his surfboard in waist-deep water when a shark bit him in the right calf.
The man was treated on the scene, while the boy was taken to a nearby hospital.
