Two people were nipped by a shark on the same day at New Smyrna Beach Volusia County, Florida, USA. The incident occurred on 7 September 2013.
A 25-year-old man was bitten on the shin around 4pm while swimming in waist deep water and a minute later a 43-year-old surfer was bitten on his foot.
The two victims had only minor injuries. They were treated by Ocean Rescue and then left on their own to seek medical treatment.
It is thought the same 3-foot shark bit both victims as the bites occurred less than 100 meters apart, according to the report.
