INJURED – 23 April 2011 — New Smyrna Beach, Volusia County, Florida, US – surfer bitten

In what is quite a regular occurrence during summer, surfers at New Smyrna Beach, Volusia County, Florida, US are nipped by small sharks, leaving just minor injuries which in many cases can be attended to by lifeguards at the beach.

The first bite of the 2011 season took place on Friday 23 April. Ronald White, 49, was nipped on the right ankle around 3.30pm while in about 3-foot of water. Looking at the bite, shark experts reckon it was only 1- or 2-foot shark. White didn’t see the shark.

It was reported that he was treated for the minor injury on-scene and declined further treatment.

No further details were reported.
