  • 8-year-old boy bitten by shark on Bald Head Island in N.C

He was left with a ten-inch bite wound on his leg.

The most recent attack happened yesterday when an 8-year-old boy was swimming.

Luckily the boy was okay, but it is absolutely terrifying to imagine what he went through.

This is the third shark attack off the North Carolina coast in the last month.

Village Manager Chris McCall said that the boy was bitten on the leg while he was in the water just off Bald Head Island.

The boy was initially treated by public safety officers on the island, and then taken to the hospital on a local ferry, he added. And while there have been no updates on his status, the nature of the bite indicated that he would recover.

Officials were unsure of the type of shark involved.

Doctors said the teenager's left leg and two fingers on her left hand were amputated after what was likely a bull shark attack, based on tooth markings found on her bones. Unfortunately, he is just the latest in a string of recent aquatic attacks.

Austin Reed, 19, was bitten while surfing at Ocean Isle Beach on June 10.
