INJURED – 26 June 2012 — Juno Beach Pier, Jupiter, Florida, USA – swimmer attacked

Nickolaus Bieber is taken to hospital following a shark bite at Juno Beach, Florida, US.

Nickolaus Bieber, 6, was bitten on the thigh by shark while swimming in shallow water near Juno Beach Pier, Jupiter, Florida, USA. The incident happened on 26 June 2012.

A hospital spokesman said there was quite a large chunk bitten from the boy’s thigh.

“We’re guessing a shark, it’s a pretty big gash,” a bystander told 911 in an emergency call from the beach.

His mother pulled him out of the water after the bite. She wrapped a towel around the wound and a bystander called 911. He was taken to hospital by ambulance.

The boy told his mother he saw a shark thrashing, she told the press.

Nickolaus was reported to be recovering well following emergency surgery.
