INJURED – 14 September 2008 — Ocean Shore Boulevard, Ormond-by-the-Sea, Florida, USA– swimmer attacked

A 32-year-old man was bitten on the heel by a shark while swimming swimming off the 1000 block of Ocean Shore Boulevard in Ormond-by-the-Sea, Volusia County, Florida, USA. His injuries were minor and would “probably require just a few sutures,” said a beach official at the scene.

The incident occurred on 14 September 2008.

The man, whose name was not released, was swimming in waist-deep water when a wave knocked him from his feet. While his feet were off the bottom, the swimmer felt something grab his heel. He received two minor lacerations.

Officials said that based on the pattern of bite-mark, the shark was most likely a 2- to 3-foot juvenile shark.
