Shark bites child at Ocean Isle Beach

OCEAN ISLE BEACH, NC (WWAY) — A child has been bitten by a shark at Ocean Isle Beach, Mayor Debbie Smith says.

Smith says the call came in from around Fayetteville Street on the ocean side of the island. Smith says rescue workers told her the child had a few teeth marks. She says the child’s parents reported seeing the shark following a school of fish in the area.

Mayor Smith says there are no warnings up on the beach right now, but she says town leaders are assessing the situation.

We have a crew on the scene and will have more information as it becomes available.
